Bare Theatre

Anne, an aging thespian and English teacher, now in her mid-eighties and recently widowed, is determined to maintain her independence and stay in the house she shared with Poppy. Her daughter Katherine arrives with groceries and a determination to help, organize, be sensible, and plan for the future, only to find her less-than-reliable brother has been there before her. With a wry sense of humor, “Assisted Living” by David Laing Dawson explores a few of the issues of family and aging that face us all.

“Assisted Living” is dramatic comedy at its best and promises to touch your heartstrings at the very least and raise your ire when betrayal is exposed.

Directed by Roxanne Rosenblatt, the cast is Arleen Pace, Darlene Sherwood and Frank Lynch. Show dates are Friday, Saturday and Sunday, ,November 25 to 27. Curtain at 4 p.m. Tickets, 200 pesos, can be reserved at This email address is being protected from spambots.
