SYNOPSIS:

By Sam Bobrick / A couple in their late forties and a couple in their twenties have accidentally rented the same cottage for a weekend by mistake. They decide to share it and we watch the comedic clash between generations. It’s home spun humor strikes chords regardless of a viewer’s age and the laughter it kindles is as warm and spontaneous as the play’s dialogue and situations.

DIRECTED BY TIM MITCHELL

 

CHARACTERS: (All roles are open)

  • FRANK (50s – 60s) – Peggy’s husband, a straight laced, traditionally conservative man. Although he genuinely loves his wife, he tends to take her, the stability she provides, and his own comfort in life for granted. A strong sense of comedic timing is highly recommended.
  • PEGGY (late 40s – 60s) – Frank’s wife, the archetypical house wife with a strong sense of irony and sharp witted tongue. The more romantic of the two, she desires to reignite the intimacy that they once shared together in their early years. A strong sense of comedic timing is highly recommended.
  • JILL (20s) – Tony’s girlfriend, a woman absolutely smitten with her partner. She is simultaneously a voice of reason, support, and compromise, all while maintaining a light hearted attitude towards urgent “problems” as they arise.
  • TONY (20s) – Jill’s boyfriend, a passionate man through and through, especially concerning his partner. His emotions are heightened in times of distress and romance, but is also a man acutely aware of his own faults and shortcomings.
