2019 – “Romantic Fools” by Rich OrloffPosted on: February 3, 2019
Andrew and Lori are two normal people who have finally found each other. Their journey towards a stable relationship and eventually marriage has been fraught with many misadventures.
In a series of scenes, in which their roles are played by different actors, we follow their ups and downs and get to see the hazards of modern-day dating, sexual fantasies, hopeless expectations, diets, proposals and stepping up to the altar. As Andrew and Lori lead us through each mishap, we begin to understand how truly miraculous it is to find the right partner for life.

Romantic Fools is a hilarious play which suits this year’s young, fresh and funny group of actors. We have so much comedic talent in this year’s group that I had to pick an outrageous comedy and it worked! The play consists of 12 playlets of which we are doing only 10 by the author’s consent. After last year’s sombre but excellent offering, I thought it was time for something sexy, flamboyant and downright funny. I do hope you enjoy the eveneing and remain our true fans.
