UpCounty Theatre: Now and Then

January 10, 2020 - January 17, 2020
$20

A funny and ultimately moving story about love, regrets, and second chances. Jamie is a young aspiring pianist working as a bartender. He is closing up for the night when an amiable older gentleman, who seems to know the place very well, enters and engages him in friendly conversation. Then Jamie’s girlfriend Abby comes in.

At that, the gentleman offers them a thousand dollars – each – to sit and just talk for one hour. They both could use the money and with some reluctance, agree. At that, they hear an incredible, unbelievable story…that they don’t believe. But it changes their lives. A surprising fable about what it means to really love someone.

How do they see, hear or feel the world, and how do we see, hear or feel them?
