FLC Seniors Acting Lab Presents: Two One Act Plays

June 2 and 9
2:00 PM
$20.00 Regular/ $15.00 Student/Senior

Help celebrate Seniors Week this June by joining us as we take a humorous and sometimes tragic look at two issues facing seniors on a daily basis; an ageist world and the search for affordable housing.


5-card playing friends debate whether ageism really exists and what form it takes in their individual lives. The play opens with an argument between two partners, one of whom is an aspiring actor named Grant. Grant has taken their travel funds and spent it all on hair plugs, botox and fillers without telling the other partner, Sarah Beth. Then the plot takes delightful twists and turns as each character presents their point of view on ageism depending on their individual circumstances.


Gracie, Miranda and Sarah live a quiet, normal life but when they find themselves on the hunt for a new roommate it seems they may be at risk of scandalizing the neighbours! Even once they've wrapped their heads around having a man in the house, nothing could prepare them for what happens next…
