Free plays at senior centers next week

-A A +A

The Betty Ehart Center will host a free play reading at 12:30 p.m. Wednesday, and the White Rock Senior Center will have a free play Thursday of “Epiphany” by David MacGregor.

The play is directed by Pat Beck and features Jim Nesmith and Pat Beck. It centers on a long-term couple’s discussing what (and who) is truly important in their lives. How can one man’s simple epiphany trigger such a reaction in his partner? Are we really hard-wired by biology to live only 30 years or so, and now that medical science lets humans live much longer, how does that affect the way we should live our lives?

The readings are part of an ongoing partnership among the Senior Centers, Los Alamos Little Theatre, and playwright Robert Benjamin to bring live theater in enjoyable snippets every few months to the senior community.

The readings are intended not only to be entertaining, but also to spark conversation about issues relating to aging.

Previous readings include “I’m Herbert,” by Robert Anderson; “Final Gift,” “Fresh Out,” “Swerving” and “Too Soon,” by Benjamin; “MusicPoemMusic” by Elaine Jarvik; and an excerpt from “Not Quite Right,” co-authored by Jarvik and Benjamin.
