Sex, Please, We’re Sixty

Wednesday, April 14, 2021

Sex Please, We're Sixty

Some of you saw DayTrippers’ most popular show with me five years ago. After a very disappointing 2020, we all need some laughs. After an included buffet lunch, it’s time for Sex, Please, We’re Sixty! There’s not a curse word anywhere, and there’s nothing vulgar in spite of the title… just a funny situation. Someone swaps Bud’s Viagra with Venusia for women, and we soon discover that it has a strange effect on men. It gives them all the symptoms of a menopausal woman, complete with mood swings, uncontrollable weeping and irritability. Laugh along as we see what happens next. Written in the style of the Golden Girls Meets Grumpy Old Men, this hysterical comedy/drama is filled with mayhem, mischief and mood swings.

(You’re invited to join me for a brief tour of the facility after lunch.) Then we’ll head for the theatre for Breaking Up Is Hard to Do.

The Stranger

Wednesday, June 9, 2021

The StrangerOnce again, we’re returning to DayTrippers Dinner Theatre in Bloomington. After an included buffet lunch, it’s time for The Stranger. This new play by Agatha Christie, the author of The Mousetrap, was discovered in her archives in 2017. Based on her short story, Philomel Cottage, The Stranger is sure to keep you on the edge of your seat. Enid has accepted what she believes is her last, best chance at marriage, but she can’t help but feel a little trapped. Then a handsome stranger steps into her life and opens the door to new possibilities. Enid rejects her fiance for newcomer Gerald and moves to a remote country cottage with him. It has all of the characteristics of an Agatha Christie play – clues, murder, suspense and surprises, all leading to a fast-paced surprise ending.
