About the Book:

Looking is a full-length comedy by Norm Foster. From one of Canada's most popular playwrights comes this hilarious comedy. A single personal ad inadvertently draws 4 middle-aged singles together when Val and Andy arrange to meet on a blind date, dragging Nina and Matt along for moral support. High romance and contagious laughter are the result.

Looking is the story of four middle-aged singles who are seeking relationships while navigating life's pitfalls. Andy and Matt are long-time buddies looking for surefire ways to meet women. Val and Nina are best friends forever looking to meet men. Val is an O.R. nurse, Andy is in the storage business, Nina is a police officer, and Matt is the host of a morning radio show. Val agrees to meet Andy at a bar, and Nina and Matt are coaxed into joining their friends for support. The play follows their progress through the following weeks, setting off laughable plot twists and an unexpected hookup. Cleverly written, funny, and full of innuendo, Looking shows us we don't always get what we set our sights on, but what we end up with can be an unexpected surprise.

Looking premiered in 2005 at the Victoria Playhouse in Petrolia, Ontario. Since then the play has been produced widely at community theatres across North America.

About the Playwright:

Norm Foster is considered to be Canada's most produced playwright, and has had more than forty plays produced on professional stages. Frequently compared to American playwright Neil Simon, Foster pens plays that are known for their humour, accessibility, and insight into the everyday tribulations of life. He is the recipient of the Los Angeles Drama-Logue Award for his play, The Melville Boys which would go on to be produced across Canada and in the United States, including a well-received run Off Broadway in New York. It would become his signature play, and the one which would bring his name to the forefront of Canadian theatre.
