Now and Then
by Wimberley Players

Jul. 16 - Jul. 18

 Now and Then is a heartfelt romantic comedy about the costs of choices we make, and the people who make them with us. Sometimes what happens after last call can change a person’s life. One night in 1981, just as Jamie is closing the bar where he works, a desperate last minute customer offers him and his girlfriend, Abby, two thousand dollars to sit and have a drink. Before long, the young couple realizes that this stranger knows too much about their lives and their dreams. A second stranger arrives, a stranger that also knows the couple too well. Abby and Jaime sees their future and how it complicates this one night in 1981.
