Virtual Reading – SENIOR LIVING
The reading is no longer available, however, the discussions about the play are. We will be adding another discussion segment that happened during the reading in the near future.
SENIOR LIVING is a play with music about people dying to live. At Riverdale Manor, a retirement community in the Bronx, seniors contemplate the possibility of dying from a broken heart, if divorce is even worth it at a certain age, and when is the right time to have sex again. A talent show, with the promise of cake for dessert, sets the scene for a series of life-changing vignettes that debate what to do with the time we have left.
