The West Coast Premiere of
FOUR OLD BROADS
By Leslie Kimbell
Directed by Kathie Kratochvil
Four Old Broads is a new comedic play featuring four sassy, smart, and savvy, (and sometimes foul-mouthed), older women who are living at the Magnolia Place Assisted Living home. With fast-paced and quick witted dialogue, it has been called “a laugh-out-loud hysterical play with a whole lot of heart.”
The play revolves around retired burlesque queen Beatrice Shelton who desperately needs a vacation, but NOT another trip to see that “precious little German village for the umpteenth time.” Needing some fun companions on a possible trip through the Caribbean on a “Sassy Seniors Cruise,” she tries to convince her best friend, Eaddy Mae Clayton, to stop praying and go with her. Other possible companions include Imogene Fletcher who seems to suddenly be losing her memory, and Maude Jenkins, who is obsessed with her favorite soap opera and in planning her funeral. Sam Smith, a retired Elvis impersonator also lives at Magnolia Place and he keeps trying to bed every woman in the building.
A mystery unfolds with laughter as the gals try to outsmart the evil Nurse Pat Jones and figure out why so many residents have been moved “to the dark side.” Hilarity ensues as Imogene goes undercover and Maude enters the Miss Magnolia Senior Citizen Pageant to throw Nurse Pat off their trail. If they can solve the mystery, they may make it to the cruise ship after all.
