The Rest-In-Peace Retirement Home

By: Vern Harden

Age Level: Middle Grades to High School
Cast: 10 to 16F, 5M, flexible
Time: About 40 minutes, 1 act

It’s pretty deadly at the Old Folks’ Home until Larry wins the lottery. Or at least that’s the way the women hear it. They need a "good sense of rumor" to keep life interesting when they’re not searching for their teeth. The old ladies flirt with old farts, are insulted, then whomp the grumps with their canes. These old cronies can barely walk, hear, or remember what they do. Teen players have fun portraying the crotchety actions, voices, expressions, and the freedom to be someone else. This version of "The Old Folks" has funny situations and hilarious one-liners. This play can be used for contests or stage performance. Simple set, costumes, and makeup make this show a guaranteed exercise in laughter.
