The Fort Findlay Playhouse presents “A Month of Sundays,” a comedy written by Bob Larbey and produced in association with Samuel French, that addresses the difficulties inherent in growing old.
Cooper (Rick Workman), who has gone into a nursing home rather than become a burden on his family, flirts valiantly with the female staff (Sarah Hipple and Monica Hiris), banters with the other old folks and keeps a close check on his “record of physical deteriorations.” To the painful ritual of Sunday family visits and empty condescension from his daughter Julia (Breann Zerby) and son-in-law Peter (Jack Henry), Cooper and his friend Aylott (Jim O’Neill) reply with humor and wit, aware that life can only be endured if treated as a comedy.
“A Month of Sundays” is directed by Julie Lane, produced by Laurie Dye.
