    This surprisingly funny short play features roles for two strong senior actresses. The recently widowed Jennie is taken under the wing of her somewhat eccentric and opinionated  neighbor, Bettie, a veteran widow who explains the tangled maze of learning to live without your spouse. Filled with sound advice about what to do and what not to do when your loved one dies, this play affects audiences strongly, most often leaving them laughing through tears.
