About the Play:

The volume Triple Play contains for three full-length comedies by Norm Foster. These three diverse stories focus on relationships between men and women, often slightly illicit and always comedic. Norm Foster has been the most produced playwright in Canada every year for the past 20 years. His plays receive an average of 150 productions annually, making him the most produced playwright in the history of this country.

Outlaw is part comedy, part drama, part murder mystery with a lighthearted observation on the cultural divide marked by the 49th parallel. A young Canadian homesteader travelling far from home, finds himself accused of murder in the state of Kansas in 1871. With only his wits to defend himself, he turns the law of the land – and the men hellbent on enforcing it – upside down. This authentic western is a unique take on the days when guns were the law. (Cast: 4 male)

What people say:

"A darn good story that will have audiences on the edge of their seats." — Niagara Pulse Magazine

Jenny's House of Joy is a delightful comedy about the oldest profession. Jenny runs the best little house of ill repute in her corner of the old Wild West, set in 1871. Jenny has too many customers and now one of her "employees" has run off to get married. Jenny needs to find a new girl immediately before the next cattle drive moves through Baxter, Kansas. But when a new woman comes begging for a job, the girls at Jenny's house might just have to leave their lingerie behind. She is pretty, sexy and smart, perhaps a bit too smart and a bit too ambitious. This authentic western is the companion piece to Outlaw. (Cast: 5 female)

What people say:

"Foster sets his comedy in the 1870s and his flinty one-liners punctuate robust dialogue that builds in impact to create humane and very human beings that live as best they can in a world where women haven't the options they have today." — Hamilton Spectator

In Bedtime Stories we follow interweaving characters in their comic struggle to find the meaning of love. The play unfolds in a series of six different scenes that all feature a bed as their primary focus and are connected by time, place, and a most unusual radio broadcast. A shock radio jock pays a couple five thousand dollars to make love on the air. A woman visits a dying man she feels she hurt years ago. Two men rob a house and discover a shocking secret. An aging rock star is confronted by a groupie. An accident-prone stripper meets with her no-nonsense boss. A woman leaving her husband lectures the movers on the proper way to treat a lady. Fifteen characters and all can be played by only five actors. (Cast: 6 female, 9 male)

What people say:

"…a beautifully paced story that is quite simply a lot of fun to watch." — Simcoe Reformer

About the Playwright:

Norm Foster enjoyed a 25-year career as the morning man at independent radio stations in Thunder Bay, Winnipeg, and Kingston, before finally ending up in Fredericton, where he began writing plays. He is considered to be Canada's most produced playwright, with more than fifty-five critically acclaimed 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.
