Better Late

by Larry Gelbart 


Tues, Sept 6 and Wed, Sept 7 @ 7PM

Gulfport Players' Back Door Theater, 1619 49th Street S, Gulfport, FL



As Better Late opens, chaos rules. Ex-husband, current husband and son are all in various stages of confusion and conflict. Nora is ready to take over and deal with each man's problems. Tension builds between the two as Julian, Nora's first husband makes it more and more difficult for Lee to get any songs written. All the while family and relationship dynamics are tested when Julian and Nora's son, Billy, reveals that he is going through a divorce of his own. How long will it take until someone cracks? This biting December-December-December romance is a not-to-be-missed romantic comedy.


Vic Carr directs and is looking to cast 1 female and 3 males:


Nora (mid-60s) - TV and movie actress, strong-willed, take-charge woman

Lee (late 50s-early 60s) - very successful music composer, easy-going


Julian (70s) - Nora's first husband, father to Billy, retired auto salesman


Billy (30s) - Nora and Julian's son, married with 2 children, major problems with his wife, relies on his mother
