The Marco Players’ production of “A Bench in the Sun” radiates humor and is full of insight about life’s successes and failures. A delightful gem of a production, long-time comedy writer, Ron Clark’s play is full of charming one-liners about the seasons and sacrifices of one’s life. “Aging may be a fact of life, but that does not preclude the need for friendship and love. This play examines those needs with honesty and humor,” says Director Anna Segreto.

Burt (Val Kuffel), Harold (Charlie Sloin), and Adrienne (Rhonda Davis) deliver a funny and endearing tribute to the joys and tribulations of aging. Beyond the humor and wit are gentle but ironic reminders of one’s mortality and the undeniable changes that await those consigned to retirement living.

“A Bench in the Sun” is on stage March 14-31 at The Marco Players Theater, Marco Town Center Mall, 1089 N. Collier Blvd., Marco Island. Shows are Wednesday to Saturday at 8 PM and Sundays at 3 PM.
