This winter, Studio Theatre Perth presents Alone Together Again, the story of an empty nester couple whose nest never quite empties. Lawrence Roman’s play focuses with humour and honesty on the many challenges faced by the “Sandwich Generation.”
At mid-life, George and Helena are hoping to start a new phase in their lives together. Their plans are quickly overturned when their parents show up unexpectedly at their door, facing their own unique struggles with aging, health issues, and keeping up with a fast-paced world.
“There’s a lot here,” says Director Grey Masson. “I think people will recognize the situations, recognize the characters. It’s funny, it’s touching. And it’s got its moments of drama.”
Alone Together Again runs from February 21st to March 3rd. Evening shows: 7:30 pm. Sunday matinees: 2:00 pm. Advance tickets are $24 at Tickets Please in the Matheson House Museum Visitor Centre and at the Studio Theatre on show nights. Student discount available with ID. Save $5 on opening night! Visit studiotheatre.com for more details.
The cast of Alone Together Again. Front: Joanna McAuley-Treffers (Helena), Jeff Wilson (George). Back (L-R): Deb Lane (Grace), Craig Young (“Pop”), and Loretta DiEugenio (Ruth). Show opens Thursday, February 21st at the Studio Theatre in Perth. Visit studiotheatreperth.com for more details.
