Description: Old age isn’t what it used to be — thank goodness! “Senior Housing” explores what happens when a well meaning son (or daughter) brings his parent to look at a 55+ community that isn’t quite what what anyone would expect.

Description: At age 6, Meredith Wilfred loves to tell people that she hates her neighbor, Andrew Powers. At age 16, she tells Andrew the same thing but goes to the dance with him anyway. At 45, Meredith and Andy have a great deal to tell each other: most married couples do. And, even at 66, Meredith is still learning about, and from, Andrew. All eight characters—two people at four different times in their lives—are onstage at the same time. The result is a play about love (and hate) and the way people change each other.
