Now and Then
by Way Off Broadway Community Players

Jan. 07 - Jan. 08 (2023)

Sometimes what happens after the last call just might change your life. One night in 1981, just as Jamie is closing the bar where he works, a desperate last-minute customer offers him and his girlfriend Abby two thousand dollars to sit and have a drink with him. Who wouldn't take it? As the trio swap stories and Jamie considers the decisions he faces about his musical career and his future with his girlfriend Abby, the young couple begins to realize that this older man is unusually invested in their choices... and the reason he gives them is completely unbelievable. But when a very displeased second stranger arrives, the unbelievable begins to look like it just might be true. Now and Then is a heartfelt romantic comedy about the costs of the choices we make, and the people who make them with us.

2 men and 2 women -- character descriptions (ages are flexible):

JAMIE, late 20s-early 30s (or ?). Bartender and aspiring pianist. Attractive in a regular-guy way. Sincere, hardworking, very much in love with ABBY

MAN, mid-60s. A bit beaten down but good-natured. Easy to talk to, well-spoken, sincere, and very intent on his mission tonight. Husband of 35 years to WOMAN. He is desperate.

ABBY, late 20s-eary 30s. IHOP waitress and one-time English major. Funny, smart, and very much in love with JAMIE.

WOMAN, mid-60s or a bit younger. Strong, direct, loving, a little coarse. She is MAN's wife of 35 years. No one knows her like he does and no one knows him like she. She and MAN bicker but there is a bedrock of love there. They'd do anything for each other and no one can hurt either of them like the other one can.
