-A A +A
By Kirsten Laskey

Love, like a lot of things in life, comes without any rules or guidelines so it’s up to you to determine what choices will cause good and bad effects. While loads of complicated advice about love exists, local playwright Robert Benjamin’s play, “Time Enough” offers some simple guidance: Just be brave.The audience gets this lesson from Ken (Eric Bjorklund) and Annie (Fran Martone), two people in their golden years who are attending a Shakespeare festival. At first it seems Annie and Ken are just two strangers who randomly bumped into each other at a bed and breakfast, but their relationship is much more complex.It turns out Annie and Ken were high school sweethearts who eventually broke up as teenagers. But, now, after all these years, the romance is re-blooming.It starts with just cups of tea, it progresses to a hike and then advances into a dinner date.It may sound sweet, but this relationship will not be an easy one for them; as Ken and Annie’s love develops, so do their obstacles. Annie’s husband died from cancer and the disease still shackles her to some extremely tragic memories. Ken is also dealing with his own physical and mental demons.However, while Annie openly shares her predicament, Ken keeps his secret. But, the script cleverly offers clues about his situation.
