World Premiere: Adobe Theater, June 2-25, 2006; directed by Barbara Bock, performed by Joni Lloyd and Alan Hudson. Ten of the twelve shows were full houses.
Time Enough is both a fairy tale and a provocative contemporary drama about aging boomers. Recently widowed, Ann ventures to a Shakespeare festival where she meets a lyrical codger at three in the morning at the B&B inn. Their banter leads to anonymous intimacy that explodes when she realizes he's her high-school sweetheart. Romance ensues until his revealed secret destroys the protective barrier between her and her unresolved grief. Both face an excruciating decision about whether to continue the relationship in this intimate tale of rekindled romance, deception and longing.
