When a grieving widow is approached by an old acquaintance to pay his respects, a strained courtship begins that poses the question: is love worth all the bother? Old Love is a delightfully funny tale of romance, marriage, and friendship between older adults. Two acts. This is the second show of B Street’s 2010-2011 Mainstage Series.

Norm Foster is a long-time favorite of B Street Theatre audiences. Mr. Foster’s Affections of May, The Melville Boys, The Foursome, Drinking Alone, The Motor Trade and Mending Fences have all been produced at B Street.
