The first weekend’s audiences loved A Bench in the Sun, the funny and poignant play about two lifelong elderly friends (except for a gap of 42 years) that spend their days bickering and reminiscing on the garden bench at their retirement home. Burt (played by Shannon Copeland) is a cynic who remains in his PJ’s all day so he does not have to undress for his frequent naps. A retired accountant, he has spent his life at one job, married to the same woman. Harold (played by Norman Gouveia), is an eternal optimist, despite his three failed marriages, five failed businesses and children that won’t speak to him.
When the glamorous and famous movie star, Adrienne Bliss (played by Candace Pressnall), moves in they find themselves vying for her affection and along the way discover that a friendship like theirs is even better than Tapioca pudding.
The show is directed by Sonja Persey and Assistant Director Gene Persey, Jr.
