Book & Lyrics by Norm Foster - World Premiere!
Music & Lyrics by Steve Thomas
What would you do if you could hit the re-set button on a stale marriage? Paula and Sam have finally decided to pack it in as a couple. As they divvy up their household goods they wonder what would have happened if they’d never met. Would their dreams and young ambitions have come true? The discovery of a long-forgotten wedding gift sets off a chain of events that transports them back to their college days and the opportunity to rewrite their history together. Reuniting Norm Foster and composer Steve Thomas - co-creators of audience favourites Jasper Station, Race Day and Sitting Pretty, Beside Myself is a sweet musical examination of love lost and found.

I'm excited about the two brand new plays I am working on for the new 2019 season. They are as different as night and day and yet I believe they will both still touch the funny bone and the heart of our audience.
