Bob Wilson will portray Frank Foster and Doreen Robertson will play his wife, Fiona.  Doug Stewart is Bob Phillips with Juli Ghiselin playing the role of Terry Phillips.  John Pittman has been cast as William Detweiler with Susan Robertson in the role of Mary Detweiler.

 The play takes place in the ‘70s and is a hilarious comedy by British playwright Alan Ayckbourn.  Performed on an overlaid set, the audience will see two households simultaneously with characters almost colliding but unaware of each other, explained Nunn. 

Bob Phillips is romantically involved with his boss’ wife and when his wife and the boss’ wife become suspicious, Bob and Fiona try to place the blame on an innocuous couple—the results are hysterical especially when both the Fosters and the Phillips have the innocent couple to dinner on consecutive nights.  The audience will be treated to seeing both dinner parties at once.

 Sue Broadway is producing the show and Ilona Duncan is stage-managing.  Bob Walker will be at the light board and Bruce Hamilton will serve as sound engineer. Lee Pulling, Ben Estes and John Mill are constructing the set.

 Nunn directed some 20 shows for the Players in the ‘80s and since her return to Lancaster County has directed “Rumors,” “Plaza Suite,” and “My Sweet One,” by local playwright Brad Stephens.

Additionally, she has directed six productions for the Northern Neck Home School Association. The most recent was “A Christmas Carol.”  Nunn also directs a two-week youth acting workshop at the Lancaster Players’ Playhouse in July.

 Production dates are March 8, 9, 15,16, 22, and 23.  The playhouse opens at 7 p.m. for a social hour and the curtain is at 8 p.m.  There will be a matinee at 3 p.m. on March 24. 

Tickets are $20 each. Group rates are available for groups of 15 or more. For reservations, call 435-3776, or make them online at lancasterplayers.org.
