An oil lamp

Now and Then

by Sean Grennan

March 17th - May 1st

The performance runs approximately two hours with an intermission.

Oil Lamp Theater kicks off its 2022 season with Now and Then, a heartfelt romantic comedy about the costs of the choices we make, and the people who make them with us.

One night in 1981, just as Jamie is closing the bar where he works, a desperate last-minute customer offers him and his girlfriend Abby two thousand dollars to sit and have a drink with him. Who wouldn’t take it? As the trio swaps stories and Jamie considers the decisions he faces about his musical career and his future with his girlfriend Abby. The young couple begins to realize that this older man is unusually invested in their choices… and the reason he gives them is completely unbelievable. But when a very displeased second stranger arrives, the unbelievable begins to look like it just might be true.
