THE INTERVIEW – PLAY ABOUT GETTING OLDER (Digital Script)

It’s a delicate subject but they’re not afraid of it. In this one-act comedy/drama Len and Elaine have made peace with who they once were and the fact that they are no longer those people anymore. Today, Beth, a young reporter, is supposed to be interviewing Len who enjoyed his days in the sun as a writer, with Elaine at his side. The Interview is a play about what is easily forgotten and also easily recalled, how old age can render you more than helpless and how youth and all its glory is as fleeting as life itself. But no matter how old you are, there is always something you can do for other people.

It isn’t easy getting old. In fact, it’s strange.
