Later Life

by A.R. Gurney, directed by Ed. Lange

Feb. 13, 14, 15, 2009 (Fri.-Sun.) Austin has spent his entire life convinced that something terrible is bound to happen to him.
One night, at a party overlooking Boston Harbor, he has the pleasure of rekindling a romance begun almost thirty years ago with Ruth. Now a multiple divorcee, Ruth’s personal life is in such turmoil that mutual friends look to Austin as Ruth’s last shot at normalcy. At the same time, they are hoping that the wildly unpredictable Ruth will help loosen Austin from the grip of years of depression and lifelessness. Comically, and sometimes painfully, these two people rediscover each other and themselves. Seldom has a sad story been told with so much fun and humor.
