Life tends to go full circle. As you go through your teenage years you are a bit restricted by your parents, and when away from home, say at college, you are always checked up on. The same can also be said as you grow older. As you get up in years your kids get even with you, so it seems. You seem to be restricted just because you are old. And should you go out, everyone needs to keep tabs on you. The difference . . . at first you are learning. As you go through life you gain wisdom. With that wisdom comes a greater responsibility to listen, and to be there for your grandchildren.
Social Security is comical. The above paragraph is just my take on this play by Andrew Bergman. The cast at Beatniks was great. Why they do not start laughing in the middle of some of this play I do not know. Talent I would say. This play is real life. We all see it, go through it, and to different degrees. I think the cast at times understood this. They settled into their parts during rehearsal as if it was their life in front of them . . . comical as it is.
Here are the characters and cast of the play . . .
About the cast themselves . . . rehearsal was great. I cannot wait to see them perform this play in front of an audience. I will not be able to make it to opening night, which to me is the exciting night. I will make it the day after.
