IS THERE LIFE AFTER FIFTY? is a new comedy that flirts with a topical theme: the aging of the Baby Boomer generation. As Boomers crest 50 and sail on toward (gulp) 60 and beyond, what are they thinking?
Three couples who all raised their kids on the same street have found a way to keep in touch after they move to new cities. Each year, on Labor Day weekend, the friends, now in their fifties, vacation together. This year, the ladies have planned a little surprise: a healthy, all-natural weekend at a trendy health resort, complete with organic food and exercise. The men, who really come for the beer and snacks, are not pleased when they find out.
Tensions escalate into an all-out battle of the sexes, and the cabin is divided, literally, into the men against the women. They battle over health food, exercise, pizza, The Godfather, rock and roll, hot tubs, hot flashes, tummy tucks and their refusal to become middle-aged!
From its smash hit premiere run at the Rainbow Dinner Theatre in Lancaster, PA, IS THERE LIFE AFTER FIFTY? has played at theatres large and small, from California to North Carolina and in between. The show not only made audiences scream with laughter, it touched them as well.
