Four women meet once a year for a ritual photo shoot, chronicling their changing (and aging) selves as they navigate love, careers, children, and the complications of history. But when these private photographs threaten to go public, relationships are tested, forcing the women to confront who they are and how they’ll deal with whatever lies ahead… This production contains strong language and adult situations.

In this charmingly comic off-Broadway hit, unanticipated revelations result when five people enroll in a community center adult acting class. Over six weeks, seemingly silly theatre games unwittingly expose their innermost hopes and fears. Secrets are disclosed. Relationships begin and end. Real-life drama supplements the make-believe.

Southern Comforts runs June 10-12

Presented by Young at Heart Players
June 10-12

Some people need continuous change in order to feel alive. Others are terrified of unsettling the peace that they have established. In a sprawling New Jersey Victorian, a taciturn Yankee widower and a vivacious grandmother from Tennessee find a second chance at love. Their funny and enchanting romance is filled with surprise and unpredictable tribulation. this off-Broadway success is an affecting, late-in-life journey of compromise and rejuvenation, of personal risk and the rewards of change.
