Assisted Loving
, by Bob Morris, to be Performed at East Hampton’s Guild Hall on Friday, July 28th

Assisted Loving

If you didn't catch the reading of Bellport’s own Bob Morris’ four character comedy, Assisted Loving: True Tales of Double Dating With My Dad, at the 92nd St Y last Fall, it’s being performed again on Friday, July 28th at East Hampton’s Guild Hall!

“What would you do if your 70-year-old father dragged you into his search for new romance after 50 years of marriage? David, a resolute bachelor learns more about love than he bargained for and as his father’s wingman and screener, sees some things he’d like to forget. Richard Kind and Tovah Feldshuh shake it up in this battle of the sexes as fizzy as a bottle of seltzer. Directed by Gordon Greenberg (Holiday Inn on Broadway) and based on the author’s award winning memoir Assisted Loving: True Tales of Double Dating With My Dad, this is a heartfelt and hilarious true tale of a year of dating dangerously.”

“Mercilessly funny,” Vanity Fair

“Hilarious and Touching,” Los Angeles Times

“Charming, Poignant,” USA Today


This single performance is being presented at East Hampton’s Guild Hall, located at 158 Main Street, in East Hampton, on Friday, July 28th at 8pm. Click here to buy tickets.
