Salt and Pepper, a humorous play about maturing by Los Alamos playwright Robert Benjamin, returns to Teatro Paraguas after eight sold-out performances last November, and re-opens on January 17, 2014 for four performances.
Beth Kennedy Jones directs a stellar and seasoned cast, including Tone Forrest, Larry Glaister, Jennifer Graves, Deborah Hayden, Tad Jones, Kerry Kehoe, Fran Martone, Ann Roylance, Rick Vargas, and Alaina Warren Zachary.
Salt and Pepper is a tightly interwoven collection of upbeat tales about maturing with grace, courage and humor. The play's journey is from a Santa Fe park to a bed-and-breakfast inn to a post office and more. Populated by whimsical, ripening characters, this play opens with a clash over the use of a public park. It's the day-home of seasoned Shakespearean actress fallen on hard times, yet an arrogant young filmmaker wants to use it this afternoon for a movie set. The final play of the collection is his film about old newlyweds at the grave of his first wife, and guess who's cast as the new bride. Between these bookends are heartwarming stories of rekindled romance, love and loss, healing, acceptance, gift giving and receiving. It's a roller-coaster of poignant stories and sparkling characters who celebrate the hopefulness and pathos of maturing today.
