Welcome to the Pelican roost
The show romps through the “best years of their lives” at Pelican Roost, an active senior living community, where 70-something is the new 20-something, only with looser skin. The place oozes with characters, each with unique answers to later-life’s questions.
“It’s like a cruise,” explains Pelican Roost resident Naomi Lipschitz-Yamamoto-Murphy, “except the final destination is not The Bahamas.” Naomi is one of 18-characters played by the two actors.
The show’s authors have a different take on aging than some. “Old age is no more about fixed incomes and disability than youth is about student debt and hangovers,” says Rick Compton.
“Imagine a world in which no one expects you to work, no one can get pregnant, and where you get a 20% discount just for being alive,” Betsy Bennett says. “That’s Assisted Living.”
*This production does contain some adult themes and adult language.
