November 1 to November 24, 2013
The 6th production of the 2013 Season
Written by: Andrew Bergman
The show takes place in the trendy New York apartment of David and Barbara Kahn, who are successful Manhattan art gallery owners. The couple’s domestic tranquility is shattered upon arrival of Barbara’s sister Trudy and her CPA husband Martin, who have ventured in from the suburbs of Long Island to drop off Barbara’s and Trudy’s feisty and cantankerous 80 year-old mother, Sophie. The reason that Martin and Trudy give for having to drop off Sophie (without warning) is to save their college student daughter from a life of promiscuity. Martin and Trudy go into comedic detail about their young daughter’s alleged sexual adventures.
The situation gets even more surprising when Sophie meets famous French artist Maurice Koenig-who happens to be spry 98 years old—at a dinner party given in his honor. As Sophie is transformed, we are all witness to what it means to be “forever young.” This show contains adult themes.
This show is being presented at Pacifica Spindrift Players in our Muriel Watkin Gallery Performance Space.
