Bittersweet romantic comedy opens in Theatre Orangeville Feb. 14

Meet Toby Boone.
He is a middle-aged film critic. Alone, depressed and at the end of his rope he comes across a photo of his first love, Marisa. He has not seen her since he was 13 years old, at summer camp. Feeling he has nothing to lose, Boone throws caution – and common sense – to the wind and sets out on the ultimate universal fantasy – to dis­cover what might have been.
Rope’s End was written by Douglas Bowie, well known for the high profile television and movie scripts he has writ­ten, including Chasing Rain­bows (starring Paul Gross and Michael Riley) and the major motion picture The Boy in Blue (starring Nicholas Cage).
He is currently playwright-in-resi­dence at Thousand Islands Playhouse in Gananoque, and lives in Kingston.
Starring in Rope’s End are the husband and wife team of Sharron Matthews and George Masswohl.
It runs until March 2. For tickets call Theatre Orange­ville’s box office at 519-942-9321 or 1-800-424-1295.
