Love. Age. Perspective.
The wisdom learned of experience.
The innocence and impatience of youth.

Loves and Hours is the story of Dan Tilney. He’s a newly divorced empty nester – and a man now totally at a loss as to what to do with the rest of his life. His friends know. Dan needs a girl. But will it be Charlotte, beautiful, bursting with life and twenty years his junior? Or will it be Julia; his life-long friend and confidant? And what about his teenage son who is having an affair with a neighbor? And his ex-wife who has announced she’s gay? What about his best friend, Harold, – who is going through a midlife crisis and his daughter, Rebecca, who is seemingly furious with everything and everyone? In this gentle comedy, life and love are complicated for the young and not so young alike.

Written by local playwright: Stephen Metcalfe
Directed by: Fran Gercke

SRT’s nominee for a 2017 SDPAL STAR Award, Julia Rhea. We are very grateful to Julia, as described below. See MoreSee Less

For the better part of 20 years, Julia Rhea has been THE key volunteer doing the layout of programs (e.g., "Playbill") for each of Scripps Ranch Theatre’s productions, of which there are now six each season. In addition to her remarkable software skills and artfulness, her diligence, responsiveness, and, frankly, her charming tolerance of last-minute changes and edits, speak volumes about her importance. From SRT’s perspective, we can’t imagine anyone being as creative, thorough, flexible, and overall engaging as Julia. SRT is proud to honor Julia as our highly deserving Star Award volunteer.

CALL FOR ACTORS to read various roles in first drafts of brand new plays in Scripps Ranch Theatre’s New Works Studio. See descriptions of roles below. The purpose of these readings is so the playwrights may hear the plays out loud and receive feedback for rewrites.
You MUST be a very good cold reader – if you are not skilled at cold readings, please don’t respond. We may ask you to read different roles in different plays. We will be reading from electronic devices (Ipads, tablets, etc.) so owning one of those is helpful. You must be available Saturday, May 20 from Noon to 5pm and/or Saturday, June 3 from Noon to 5pm. There is no pay for these first draft readings. Readings will be on the campus where Scripps Ranch Theatre is located.
Please send a headshot/resume for consideration to Robert May at
