People's Light Presents THE CHILDREN By Lucy Kirkwood in January
December 20, 2019
People's Light presents Lucy Kirkwood's The Children, 2018 Tony Award nominee for Best Play. Two retired nuclear physicists live a quiet life in a cottage by the sea. Outside, the world is plagued by earthquakes, tsunamis, and a nearby nuclear meltdown. When a former colleague turns up after forty years with a shocking request, three old friends must reckon with their shared culpability in this darkly funny disaster drama. Directed by Executive Artistic Director Abigail Adams, The Children stars People's Light veterans Janis Dardaris, Marcia Saunders, and Graham Smith; and runs in the 160-seat Steinbright Stage January 15 a?" February 9. Tickets start at $35, including fees. To purchase, call 610.644.3500 or visit peopleslight.org. People's Light is located at 39 Conestoga Road, Malvern, PA 19355. (more...)

The new year finds ART of WNY presenting the classic story, The Gin Game, written by D.L. Coburn.
Directed by Michael Lodick, two retirees (Gary Darling & Joy Scime) locked away in a senior citizens home learn of each others history over a friendly game of gin rummy. As the game becomes increasingly one-sided, friendliness turns to bitterness as the two begin to exploit the more unpleasant side of each other's history.
