Sex, Please, We’re Sixty

Wednesday, April 14

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.
