Benny and Boris – Ten minute poignant comedy for seniors

ten minute poignant comedy


Benny and Boris meet everyday in the park, on the same bench. They play cards. They talk. About life. It’s not the same anymore. Everyone is a schmuck nowadays. Although, that guy from high school, remember him? He was a schmuck then too. Okay – some things just don’t change. Oh well. The thing, though that really bothers Benny, besides the idiot doctor and the fact that he can’t remember what he ate this morning for breakfast, is that his son doesn’t want him to live with him anymore, now that the new baby is here. And who calls their baby Randy anyway? People nowadays, well they just have no clue how to name their kids properly. Or how to look after their parents.

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