Point Loma Playhouse continues its 2018-19 season with the sweet comedy “First Night by Jack Neary.” It’s New Year’s Eve 1992. With a dreamlike plot, film-obsessed Danny Fleming is watching an old movie at the video store where he works. When he wanders into the back room, Meredith O'Connor appears at the window then sneaks in and hides behind a rack of tapes in order to jump out and surprise Danny.

These two haven't seen each other in 20 years, since they were in eighth grade. Danny's dreams of being a writer are all but forgotten and Meredith's two decades as a nun have taken a different direction; for Meredith it’s reminiscent of Maria Von Trapp and for Danny it is making a big splash owning his own cinema. What hasn’t changed is the past – when they were in eighth grade. Featured in this heartfelt love story are local actors Timothy Benson and Sarah LeClair Klacka with direction by Jerry Pilato and technical direction by Jay Maloney.

“First Night” takes to the stage at Point Loma Playhouse 3035 Talbot St. at the historic Point Loma Assembly Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2:30 p.m. Nov. 30 through Dec. 16. Tickets can be may be purchased at pointlomaplayhouse.com.
