LIVE in The Pluss Theatre at the Mizel Arts & Culture Center. *Covid 19 vaccinations are required to attend this production.

Bea and Althea are retired performers making good on a promise to spend their twilight years at a home for Retired Artists where they use their wit and humor to adjust to senior life. They spend their days exchanging barbs and reliving their glory days as actors. It becomes apparent that unwelcome changes in body and mind are occurring – for one of them faster than the other – illustrated by spirited conversations with inanimate objects. Bea and Althea’s younger selves appear during flashback scenes, then slowly throughout the play the younger and older pairs meld to form a harmonious quartet.
