Later Life – FundraiserBenefiting Englewood Helping Hand, Inc.Oct 24, 2017
SPECIAL BENEFIT PERFORMANCE FOR ENGLEWOOD HELPING HAND, INC.
Later Life – a Comedy/Drama written by A. R. Gurney and Directed by Jenni Elliott
Austin has spent his entire life convinced that something terrible is bound to happen to him. One night, at a party, overlooking Boston harbor, he has the pleasure of rekindling a romance begun almost thirty years ago with Ruth. Now a multiple divorcee, Ruth’s personal life is in such turmoil that mutual friends look to Austin as Ruth’s last shot at normalcy. At the same time, these friends are hoping the wildly unpredictable Ruth will help loosen Austin from the grip of years of depression and lifelessness. Comically, and sometimes painfully, these two people rediscover each other and themselves while a bevy of free-spirited other guests rally behind them and remind them of the infinite possibilities that life holds, should one only choose to pursue them.
Lemon Bay Playhouse, and many of the volunteers, are donating the facility and their time for this one night performance of the play, “Later Life”. This benefit performance is planned for a night that the playhouse is normally closed. The Playhouse is donating ALL of the proceeds from this performance to Englewood Helping Hand, Inc. The cost of a reserved seat ticket for this fundraiser performance is $25.00.
Help stock the pantry shelves and enjoy a night at the theater filled with drama and comedy. Come join us and put the FUN into FUNdraiser.
