Announcing the Premier Performances of “Better Days”
The 40+ Stage Company is proud to present the premier of “Better Days” by Mark Pirolo, the first play of the season written by a local playwright. “Better Days” is a poignant drama in two acts about two men struggling to renew their love for one another after a painful and unexpected break. Peter, twenty-something has returned to pick back up with Mitchell, a partner he left without a word months earlier. Both men struggle to recreate the trust and intimacy they enjoyed when they first met.
40+ Stage Company: A Company for All Ages, Relevant, Challenging, and Intergenerational
40+ Stage Company believes in the transformative power of theater. Our play selection focuses on issues of intergenerational concern and relevance to our community today. We want to provide actors of all ages with opportunities to perform in meaningful, challenging roles. As an amateur company, we are committed to the highest standards of performance.
Our outreach program extends to organizations provide services and moral support to the aging. Acting, as a performance art form, requires engaging with others and practicing and honing listening skills, memory reliability, and introspection. A creative lifestyle in the afternoon years has a demonstrative positive effect in overcoming depression, isolation, addiction, and a host of conditions often associated with growing older.
