The Community Players opens their 98th season with "Social Security", the hilarious comedy about a couple of trendy New York art dealers, David and Barbara Kahn, whose lives are upended when her mother comes to live with them. Barbara's nerdy sister Trudy and up-tight CPA husband Martin make a surprise visit to the Kahns, informing them that they have had enough of caring for the cantankerous Sophie, and need to go off to their daughter's college to save her from the horrors of sex. Written by Andrew Bergman (screenwriter of Blazing Saddles, Soapdish, and Honeymoon in Vegas), Social Security is sure to hit home with anyone who has dealt with the joys and challenges of caring for an elderly parent.
Social Security will be presented September 14, 15, 16, 21, 22 & 23 as part of The 20th Annual Pawtucket Arts Festival. Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 and Sundays at 2:00. Jenks Auditorium, 350 Division Street, Pawtucket (across from McCoy Stadium). E-tickets available at www.thecommunityplayers.net or call (401) 726-6860.
