Terrace Little Theatre presents ‘The Ladies Foursome’

Norm Foster’s fast-paced, lighthearted comedy graces the dinner theatre stage this year

Laughter, friendship and unravelled secrets discovered between four women over 18 holes is coming to the Terrace Little Theatre’s dinner theatre this month.

Canadian playwright Norm Foster’s ‘The Ladies Foursome’ follows four golfers after the loss of their close friend Catherine. A day after the funeral, Connie, Tate and Margot tee up in honour of her memory and meet Dory, a long-time friend of Catherine’s who they had never met before.

The production at the Skeena Valley Golf and Country Club stars Amber Zanon as Connie, Erica Wilson as Tate, Cheryl Spencer as Margot and Amy Turner as Dory. The play is co-directed by Nancy Stone Archer and Julie Jacobs.

Together the four ladies tackle sticky subjects including life, death, family and sex. The jokes are fast and furious as the actors gradually reveal more and more of their characters, and discover things they may not have known about their friend Catherine as well.

“It’s really funny, Norm Foster and dinner theatre go hand-in-hand,” Jacobs says about the playwright’s funny, conversational dialogue.

During the play, Jacobs says golfers may have some flashbacks to their own experiences and the frustrations that come with it, from getting stuck in sand pits to wonky shots that miss the target.

“The audience is going to find a lot of relatable moments. We have a really bad golfer up there on stage, and her reaction every time she hits the ball — well, that’s me, I’m a terrible golfer and can’t hit straight for my life,” Jacobs says with a laugh.

Overall, she says, audience members are in for a heartwarming, lighthearted comedy played out over a round of golf.

Roast beef is on the menu this year, with an option for chicken if Uniglobe Travel is given a heads up ahead of time.
