A comedy by John F. Green
Directed by Sondra Learn
Produced by Chuck Learn
What’s funny about “retired” and “pensioner”?
You’ll find out to your delight when you see this production by Oshawa writer, John F. Green. When the landlord raises the rent on pensioner Barney Walden’s apartment one time too many, Barney takes matters into his own hands – he stops paying the rent. Threatened with eviction he recruits his new love Kate, a retired school teacher from upstairs into an elaborate real estate scheme designed to bring the landlord to his knees. As the situation becomes more and more hilarious, and buddies Max and Boris become involved, and so too does Kate’s estranged daughter, Susan, and the scheme backfires, the chaos that follows will have you rolling in the aisles.
“Highest grossing play in seven years”, reports Class Act Dinner Theatre in Whitby.
From The Grand Prairie Alberta Encore, “..delivers laughs and current-events realism!”
