Free Live Theater At Senior Centers Nov. 29-30

on November 24, 2017 - 10:25am


Mark those calendars for 12:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 29 at the Los Alamos Senior Center and Thursday, Nov. 30 at the White Rock Senior Center for a free short play reading of Epiphany by David MacGregor. 

This play is directed by Pat Beck and features Jim Nesmith and Pat Beck. It centers on a long-term couple's discussion of what (and who) is truly important in their lives. How can one man’s simple epiphany trigger such a reaction in his partner? Are we really hard-wired by biology to live only 30 years or so, and now that medical science lets humans live much longer, how does that affect the way we should live our lives? 

The readings are part of an ongoing partnership among the local senior centers, Los Alamos Little Theatre and playwright Robert Benjamin to bring live theater in enjoyable snippets every few months to the senior community.

The readings are intended not only to be entertaining, but also to spark conversation about issues relating to aging. Previous readings include I’m Herbert, by Robert Anderson; Final Gift, Fresh Out, Swerving, and Too Soon, by Benjamin; MusicPoemMusic by Elaine Jarvik; and an excerpt from Not Quite Right, coauthored by Jarvik and Benjamin.
