Los Alamos And White Rock Senior Centers Feature ‘Dead Right’

on May 9, 2017 - 1:48pm


Be sure to mark those calendars for 12:30 p.m. May 17 at the Los Alamos Senior Center and May 19 at the White Rock Senior Center for a free, very funny short play reading, Dead Right, by Elaine Jarvik.

The play stars Sally Cassil and Tom Farish and is directed by Pat Beck. This engaging play centers on how a friend’s tedious, grammatically incorrect obituary plunges Penny and Bill, age 60s, into a prickly discussion at the breakfast table. How could Bill read the paper when they have their own obituaries to plan?

It’s a touching comedy about how we hope to be remembered.
