About the play: Based loosely on a real-life story. When the menu changes at a local senior center for the members ‘own good,’ protest erupts—which reveals important issues affecting seniors, such as the need for autonomy and retaining one’s own voice. The characters are Ivan, a gentlemen of advanced years who is a regular at the senior center, and Dorothy, an administrator at the senior center who is at least 20 years Ivan’s junior.
