About the Play:

The Foursome is a full-length comedy by Norm Foster. Four old school chums get together for a friendly round of golf during their fifteenth college reunion. An early morning T-off and these fellows are carrying more than just their golf bags! Old rivalries, romances and bragging rights are won and lost in 18 entertaining holes. The Foursome is a piece of Canadiana that an audience can really identify with.

The Foursome is a warm, funny play which takes place entirely on the eighteen tees of a golf course. Rick, Ted, Donnie, and Cameron are home for their fifteenth college reunion. During the weekend, the men go out for a game of golf, and it is during this game that the four get caught up on each other's lives since their college days. The stage is 18 tees of a Golf and Country Club. At each tee they relive old times, and catch up on their problems, successes, and failures since the old college days. A family man, a con artist, a millionaire, and a TV ad salesman, the friends – at least they were back then – discover that their lives have taken them in very different directions. Of course, real golf balls are not used. All golf shots are mimed. The crisp dialogue sparkles in this adult comedy written by one of Canada's leading playwrights.

The Foursome premiered in 1998 at Theatre on the Grand in Fergus, Ontario. Since then it has been widely produced at regional and community theatres across North America.

Cast: 4 men

About the Playwright:

Norm Foster is considered to be Canada's most produced playwright, with more than fifty-five critically acclaimed plays performed throughout North America and the rest of the world. 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.
