TCP_Flamingo Court logoFLAMINGO COURT – Life in Three Condos
Tri-County Players
Feb. 14-23
Evendale Bell Tower Arts Pavilion [Evendale]

Directed by Gregg Robertson
Produced by Gregory Carl Smith

Cast: Stephen Beck, Gloria Sigman, Cathy Woodruff, Tom Keating, Linda Roll, Earl Lehkamp, Beth Smith, Arny Stoller, Sharon Rose Tyahur & Michael Williams

Flamingo Court is made up of three short plays all taking place in an apartment building where several retirees live.

Angelina, in 104, is a Neil-Simonesque piece where resident Angelina starts to fall for her neighbor Dominic. The only problem is her sick husband in the other room. Surprises abound as their mutual friend tightropes between being matchmaker and keeping each of their secrets.

Clara, in 204, is the shortest piece and also more somber of the three. Clara is suffering from memory loss and struggles with the idea of being away from her husband, Arthur, in a nursing home.

Harry, in 304, deals with an eighty-nine year-old gentleman who is trying to celebrate his birthday his way; with a hooker. Upon the arrival of his daughter and son-in-law who are trying to get every last penny they can out of their father, Harry has to get even more crafty with his stories.
