ACT ONE - ''On A First Name Basis''
ACT ONE's September Fest opens with the return of Norm Foster's brilliant comedy On A First Name Basis Sep 14-16 at the West End Studio Theatre in Portsmouth, NH.
This hilarious and touching story captured audience attention when it was first presented in June. ACT ONE's executive director Stephanie Voss Nugent explains, "The show sold out ten days before we opened - that's never happened before! And the calls kept coming in. So we knew we needed to bring the show back for all the folks we turned away. And some people are coming back to see it a second time!"
On A First Name Basis stars Pam Battin-Sacks and Alan Huisman and is the story of a very successful but irascible novelist who suddenly realizes that he knows nothing about his maid of 28 years. She, on the other hand, knows everything about him! This evening David Kilbride decides to learn all he can about Miss Hooperstaad. The result is a dazzling conversation – uproariously funny, full of surprises, and deeply moving.
