About the Play:

The Ladies Foursome is a full-length comedy by Norm Foster. On the day after the funeral of a friend, four women gather for a round of golf in honour of their recently deceased playing partner. From the tee-off to the final hole, The Ladies Foursome offers some of the funniest, most outrageous, and touching golf swings in the history of the game.

The Ladies Foursome is a funny, fast-paced, heartwarming story of friendship inspired by the popular play The Foursome. The day after their friend Catherine's funeral, Margot, Tate, and Connie gather for a round of golf in honour of their recently departed fourth. At the gold course they are joined by another woman, an old friend of Catherine's they'd never met. Over the course of eighteen holes, secrets and confessions unravel as the women discuss love, sex, children, and everything in between. The fun starts at the first tee when golfer Tate starts stretching to "loosen up" and Margot does the same by cracking open a beer!

The Ladies Foursome premiered in 2014 at Upper Canada Playhouse in Morrisburg, Ontario. Soon after, the play received an American premiere at the B Street Theatre in Sacramento, California, and since then it has been widely produced at regional and community theatres across North America.

What people say:

"The laughs aren't just laughs. They're big laughs that continue tickling the funny bone, erupting from the throat, shaking the shoulders, long after they're lobbed home. When Foster is on form, as he is here, there's not much better theatre around." — Hamilton Spectator

"Foster builds his smoothly flowing laugh machine, and still, he's able to grasp an emotionally viable resolution." — Sacramento Bee

"A show that remains winsome and buoyant in the face of weighty, potentially melodramatic themes, weaving from heartache to humor while creating a quartet of memorable and unpredictable characters." — Spokane Spokesman-Review

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.
