A BENCH IN THE SUN is a wonderful comedy about friendship and ageing. Burt and Harold both live in the same retirement home and have known each other for over 40 years. They spend their days bickering about nearly everything. When retired actress Adrienne Bliss moves in and decides to join the duo on their bench in the sun, a heated rivalry develops as the pair vie for Adrienne’s attention.
Part Grumpy Old Men, part The Odd Couple, the script is rich with one-liners, tender moments, musings about the seasons and the sacrifices one makes in life, and reflections on the way the world is changing. Mel Brooks calls the play “Very wise, very moving, but most of all, very funny.”
The play is being staged at the beautiful Convento do Sao. José in Lagoa which has a stunning and intimate 95 seater theatre. The performance nights of the show will be 27th, 28th, 29th June 2019.
Jim Landis, The show´s Director started rehearsals in early April and have a 12 week rehearsal period, and plans to rehearse on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at the Bombeiros in Lagoa.
