FOUR OLD BROADS

a comedy by Leslie Kimball

directed by Chris Chiola

Beatrice Shelton is a retired burlesque queen who lives in Magnolia Place Assisted Living with her best friend Eaddy Mae Clayton. Beatrice is desperately in need of a vacation, but she craves something more interesting than yet another trip to that “precious little German village” in Helen, Georgia. A Sassy Seniors Cruise through the Caribbean may be just the ticket if she can just convince Eaddy to go with her rather than praying for her. Unfortunately, Nurse Pat Jones has started working at Magnolia Place and it’s no longer the pleasant home they’ve become accustomed to. Retired Elvis impersonator Sam Smith keeps trying to bed every woman in the building while Maude Jenkins is obsessed with her favorite soap opera and planning her own funeral. Meanwhile, the newest resident, Imogene Fletcher, is suddenly losing her memory, but why? A mystery unfolds with laughter as the gals try to outsmart the evil Nurse Jones and figure out why so many residents have been moved to “the dark side”. Just what exactly IS Nurse Jones’ mysterious pill, and what happened to Doctor Head? Beatrice teams up with Imogene and Maude to put their plan in motion. Hilarity ensues as Imogene goes undercover and Maude enters the Miss Magnolia Senior Citizen Pageant to throw Nurse Jones off their trail. If they can solve the mystery, they just might make it to the cruise ship after all and have the vacation of a lifetime. Watch these sassy sleuths dig for clues when Leslie Kimball's FOUR OLD BROADS hits TAPA’s stage.

The Gin Game

written by D.L. Coburn

directed by Robert Buckingham

Fonsia Dorsey, a new resident at a nursing home for senior citizens, meets Weller Martin, a loner and longtime resident at the home. Weller decides to help Fonsia work out the newbie jitters by playing a game of gin rummy. Having never played the game before, Weller teachers Fonsia the basics and she instantly has a case of beginners’ luck. This builds her confidence and hilariously irritates Weller, as he assumed an easy victory. This begins a friendship where the two play gin rummy and discuss their families, money, society, and the outside world. The Gin Game, 1978 Pulitzer Prize winning drama written by D.L. Coburn, is a poignant story of people who fight loneliness, loss, and each other while playing Weller’s favorite game and the only thing that helps counter a lifetime of defeats.

Opening night June 16, 2023 is Gala Night. Each ticket holder receives one free beverage and complimentary hors d'oevres.
