_D4D4195This play is one of the funniest things you will watch this year…! Norm Foster is at his best with this fast paced comedy about Bill a 50yr old Statistician and his Best friend Leon and how they set about finding the perfect partner for Bill…..! With the help of a gypsy woman and her Love List…Justine appears and turns Bills life into a whirlwind of passion, fun, mystery and sex…!!! This roller coaster of fun will have you belly laughing for hours after you get home…! But just remember…be careful what you wish for!!

Note: Ths play contains limited dialogue of an adult nature.




Comments and Reviews…

We took our daughter and son in law to the play last evening and thoroughly enjoyed it. We had seen the Love List years ago at Neptune so we knew it would be very entertaining. It is wonderful to have this theatre in Bedford. We have enjoyed many good plays at the Astor in Liverpool put on by Winds of Change theatre group but had not been to Bedford before. We will be sure to get there again.” – Nancy

Laughing is good for you and I have been laughing a lot at the show!” – Preview night patron

What a GREAT modern morality play!  Lots of great messages and VERY funny! I’m going to tell everyone there’s a great show on at Bedford Players!” – Patron after opening night

Norm Foster should be proud to have his comic genius so aptly presented by these very talented actors!  Hilarious delivery, as evidenced by the reaction of the audience.  Well done!” – Sherry L

What a great play! Lots of laughs . We will definitely be back to see the Bedford players again and can’t wait to see what they have in store!” – Linda C

Fantastic play! I saw it last week and loved every minute of it! Get your tickets for the final week (this Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday – June 4-7)!!” – Elaine M

Bedford Players, you have done it again! Awesome job handling Norm Fosters “The Love List”. The actors were fantastic and had me believing they were having an actual conversation while I sat and listened in…this is hard to do and it was done superbly! Great job by all, including all the volunteers backstage as well as the lovely front of house staff!” – Jackie W

Norm Foster writes hilarious plays, but this one is brought to laugh-out-loud status by the three remarkable actors who play Bill, Leon and Justine. In fact, it reaches the laugh-until tears-come-to-your-eyes level. This team’s physical reactions to the others’ lines, the eye-rolling, the grimaces, the little mannerisms that each brings to their character are so skillfully done, so smooth and so much a part of the moment that many times they have to wait till the laughter dies down before they can continue. I can’t remember when I’ve laughed so much within a two hour period. Well done Terry, Mike, Claire and Clair. (and backstage magicians & volunteers as well). A fine evening.” – Marie C
