From Norm Foster, Bedtime Stories is definitely not a play for the kids. It’s a collection of vignettes that share the sexy, funny, and touching moments that happen in our lives.
Bedtime Stories is a collection of 6 vignettes, all seperate scenes with new characters. While the three presented in the first act seem entirely disconnected, the second act brings these stories together. These vignettes are snapshots into relationships and events, all taking place in the bedroom, hence the title.
With comedy at the forefront this is an endearing play, with many sincere moments, and funny characters. Even though there are some far-fetched premises, and outlandish comedy setups, Bedtime Stories focuses on important moments in contemporary relationships. The opening scene, for example, features an stodgy middle aged couple who sign up for a sex romp on a radio show. Not exactly mundane. Their experienced relationship, however, ends up helping the radio DJ appreciate his own wife. These characters show the way we impact one another without even knowing it. Read the full review.
