A personal ad inadvertently draws four middle-aged singles together when Val and Andy arrange to meet on a blind date, dragging their best friends Nina and Matt along for moral support. Their relationships progress through the following weeks, setting off laughable plot twists and an unexpected hookup in the midst of the 1990s.
Cleverly written, funny and insightful, 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.
Tred Avon Players presents LOOKING, a smart, sexy and very relatable romantic comedy written by Norm Foster and directed by Alison Lynch. The show runs August 17-27 and will be performed in partnership with the Oxford Community Center at 200 Oxford Road in Oxford.
