12 minute comedy
How far will feisty senior, Goldalee Schneider, go to make her daughter listen to her? She’ll stage a sit-in strike at the local Holiday Inn! Handcuffed to a chair, shes lets her daughter, Maxine, know that she’d rather live at home than return to a facility where her family thinks she’ll be safer. It’s a play about relationships, autonomy and independence in another excellent piece of writing by Bara Swain.
