STRAIGHT & NARROW is a comedy about relationships
Metro Theatre is pleased to present the Vancouver PREMIERE of STRAIGHT & NARROW scribed by Jimmie Chinn with direction by Catherine Morrison on stage April 22 – May 13.
Bob and Jeff are a long-term item, living together in domestic bliss. Bob cooks, decorates and designs kitchens. Jeff builds them and jogs. All is sort of ok until they go on holiday to Malta to ‘sort things out’….and this is where the story really starts. Bob explains to the audience that we all tell lies every day just to keep the peace. For example, he has never told his mother – Vera, he is gay.
Each member of Bob’s family has their own relationship struggle: Bob’s sister Nona has been left for a younger woman by her husband Arthur, his other sister Lois is heavily pregnant with a fourth child and their mother Vera, a sharp-tongued force of nature, spends most of her time meddling in her children’s lives.
The cozy domesticity of Bob and Jeff’s life is threatened by the discovery that Jeff harbours a desire to live on the ‘straight and narrow’ and have children. Can Bob’s family help to rescue the situation? And will Bob be able to tell the determinedly unaware Vera that the ‘straight and narrow’ is not the life for her favourite little boy……?
Director Catherine Morrison explains that “Relationships are the cornerstones of everyone’s life, young and old. And relationships (of all kinds) and everything that goes with them – all the joys, and the sorrows, and all the time in-between are the basis of the play Straight & Narrow”.
