BENNY AND BORIS – TEN MINUTE POIGNANT COMEDY

A park bench on a summer day: this is where we find two old friends Benny & Boris, shooting the breeze over their weekly card game.  But today, the usual lighthearted shmoozing evolves into something deeper…

During their usual routine of playing cards and reading the obituaries, a deeply disturbing personal issue is revealed and Benny & Boris find their friendship put to the test.
Throughout this heartwarming, humorous one-act play, Benny & Boris discover that while the people closest to you sometimes let you down, family can be found in the most unexpected places.
Award-winning playwright Morley Shulman provides a fresh perspective on love & friendship, life & death, aging, and what family really means.

A ten minute poignant comedy with some great funny lines that deals with the sensitive subject of growing older and being best friends.
