“[A] wonderful comedy that opens our hearts to the laughter and sweetness of life and gives us a glimpse into hurdles that must be overcome to get there. On that roller coaster between high school and middle age, author and director Joan Burrows creates a story well worth the ride.” —Anne Ritchie, Alliston Herald
“Funny and warm, with its messy family and friends dynamics, Gloria’s Guy is a feel-good, tender romcom good time.” —Cate McKim, Life with More Cowbell
Old wounds, new secrets, and a meddlesome mother come face-to-face in this cottage-country romcom.
It’s been over twenty years since Guy ditched his high-school sweetheart Gloria at the prom, and they haven’t spoken since. Now he’s a failed LA lawyer, divorced, and working at his brother’s resort in the Muskokas. When a wedding conveniently brings Gloria to the resort for a weekend, Guy is determined to keep his distance. But their high-school friends Eva, Leslie, and Peggy, and Peggy’s mom Jessie—the crew’s former teacher—decide to play matchmakers and reconnect the long-split pair.
Between the reunion of old friends, each with their own surprises, Gloria and Guy are pushed together, learning the power of forgiveness, the warmth of opening up to someone, and the possibilities of a rewritten future.
