Guelph Little Theatre presents Gloria’s Guy
Written By: Joan Burrows
Directed By: Marnie & Alison Jutzi

Autumn breezes induce a nostalgic mood when four former high school friends return to their hometown for a wedding. Now 40, they seize the opportunity for a boisterous reunion, in a boat house apartment where they partied in the past.

But, 40 is a time for reckoning. Absurd antics and mistaken assumptions may suggest light domestic comedy, but a closer look unearths darker shades, reminiscent of Alice Munro’s thesis that “people’s lives are dull, simple, amazing and unf…athomable – deep caves paved with kitchen linoleum”.

Enter one former beau, the lingering mystery of a prom night heartbreak, and a somewhat irascible old busybody, to reveal elements of disappointment and renewal, loss and redemption.
