Lab Theater Presents 55 and Over

A Brand-New Comedy About "55 and Over" Community – May 26, 27, & 28

FORT MYERS, Fla. - May 11, 2017 - Rezul -- The Laboratory Theater of Florida presents 55 and Over by local playwright Zalman Velvel. In this comedy, unfortunate circumstances have led seventy-five-year-old Moe to eviction from his apartment in the Tidewater Housing Cooperative. He's on social security and can no longer afford both rent and his expensive heart medicine. After pleading with the retirement community manager and sleeping on the couch of next door neighbor, the surprises begin, one after another.

Moe's 30-year-old grandson, Bobby, pays a visit with his 17-year-old pregnant girlfriend, Ariella, who is ready to deliver any day. They are homeless and the co-op does not allow anyone to stay there unless they are 55 and over. As the characters are forced to live together, the audience won't know until the very end whether they will stay together or separate.

The show stars Dave Yudowitz (The Last Days of Judas Iscariot, The Diary of Anne Frank), Holly Hagan (Sirens, Stage Kiss), Mike Dinko (Play On!, An Empty Plate in the Cafe du Grand Boeuf), Todd Fleck (Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Glengarry Glen Ross), and Cindy Hile who makes her Lab Theater debut. Stella Ruiz directs.
