Mark Twain reputedly called golf “a good walk spoiled” but the four men who make up The Foursome at Bay Theatre Company are spoiling for more than a good walk. They are fellow graduates of an unnamed business college, class of 1983, and they are back together for their twentieth reunion. They are friends – or, at least, were back then – but their relationship with each other is steeped in a variety of characteristics, not all of them sweet: competitiveness, needling, mutual concern, riotous laughter, and deep fear.

"... In "The Foursome," the major winner may well be the audience members, who discover humor in male concerns about virility and relationships and in surprise truths revealed."

"... A brilliantly witty and easy comedy brings itself to the stage at Bay Theatre Company for the end of the 2012 year. A feel good funny piece coming direct from Canadian playwright Norm Foster (often called the ‘Neil Simon of Canada’), The Foursome is a warm and inviting comedy that will keep you laughing from the first put to drinks at the end of 18 holes. Directed by Jim Chance this production takes four men who haven’t seen each other in twenty years since graduating university, and brings their lives, which are now vastly different from the lives they led during the school years, back together over a round of golf played at a country club. Hilarity and shenanigans ensue. It’s a wonderful light-hearted alternative to all the Christmas shows on stage at this time of year."
