                                       On a First Name Basis

                                           By Norm Foster

                                      Directed by Jay Desiderio         

                                     Produced by Bob Desiderio                                                                                

January 23 thru March 22, 2020

Norm Foster’s play On A First Name Basis tells the story of a very successful, but somewhat reclusive spy novelist who suddenly discovers he knows absolutely nothing about his maid of 28 years, not even her FIRST NAME. She, on the other hand, knows everything about him! He makes it his mission to learn all he can about this woman who has served him for over two decades. Through their conversation, they embark on a journey of discovery that is heartwarming, engaging and extremely moving. The dialogue is swift and laugh-out-loud funny. We find ourselves caring about these two separate souls as they emerge from behind the transparent wall of their shared existence. This is a love story, a social commentary and a mystery tightly wrapped with witty dialogue and vivid imagery. A ‘must see’ here at Desiderio’s Dinner Theatre!
