A LOVE – NEVER FORGOTTEN – HUMOROUS  DRAMA FOR MATURE ACTORS

Just an old folks’ home? No. This community is more than that. It houses Rose, Alice, her husband Gordon, Ted and Jill. In this one act dramedy, it is a retirement village for mature and independent
individuals, thank you very much.

Of course it makes sense then that the most, ahem, senior ones have the deepest secrets hidden from those who ought to know them best and know truths that would shock the ones who’ve ‘seen it all’. Enter Ives (literally) whose visits to the home are to view it with the intention of perhaps moving in soon. His latest visit unravels Alice’s panic at a ghost from Christmas past. When Ives and Alice do ultimately face each other, Alice is presented with the face of a ghost alright… one that sweet, unassuming, Rose may know everything about in this humorous drama for mature actors

YOU’RE NEVER TOO OLD – THREE ACT COMEDY SCRIPT

In this witty three act comedy script, two aging brothers are reunited after a sixteen year old argument only to pick up on their sibling rivalry where it left off.

Seventy year old Max Stuart has sold the family business, an antique store in New York, and has moved to the Sunshine State with his wife of fifty-one years, Florence. Recovering from a heart attack has made Max feel old and useless, which has made him bitter and unforgiving.

As Florence tries to nurse him back to good health, Barney, Max’s fraternal twin brother, shows up sixteen million dollars richer, with a twenty-three year old bride and a business opportunity for Max.

Barney, who has always been able to talk Max into anything, convinces Max to run one of Barney’s video stores, which Barney has purchased with his millions. Max ends up humiliated when he gets talked into dressing up in a Donald Duck costume to promote some new Disney videos. This causes old hostilities to surface and the brothers are at each other again.

Barney’s problems escalate when Trixie, his bride, announces that she is pregnant. This sends Barney to the hospital in what appears to be a heart attack of his own.

Florence has been running interference throughout this whole episode and manages to get Max and Barney alone so they can work things out, once and for all. After more sibling rivalry, they both realize that brothers should be like best friends and that there is nothing more precious than family.

“You’re Never Too Old” recently received a very successful run at the Cultural Park Theater in Cape Coral, Florida.
