On A First Name Basis by Norm Foster

By Norm Foster

Directed by Shirley Marshall
Produced by Michelle Spanik

On a First Name Basis tells the story of a very successful, but cantankerous, novelist who suddenly discovers that he knows nothing about his maid of 28 years. She, on the other hand, knows absolutely everything about him! He makes it his mission to learn all he can about her in a most engaging conversation. With revelations that are surprising, funny, and extremely moving, this is a love story, a social commentary and a mystery wrapped in witty dialogue and vivid imagery.

Please note: General admission seating only (36 seats maximum per performance). All those entering the Drama Centre must provide proof of full vaccination or medical exemption and photo ID. Masks and social distancing are required for attendance as per Ontario COVID regulations.
