Feel So Young
September 6-October 4
Don and Myrna have been married for 47 years. But when their daughter sends them an “Alexa”, their comfortable routine is disrupted. Told with playfulness and heart, YOLO is a story of technology, change, and connection in the modern world. YOLO is a poignant and entertaining all ages play about how seniors wrestle with technology, that evolves into a nostalgic and poetic story about how human connection is crucial in this age of technology. Approximately 35 minutes long.
Performed by Joy Dolo and Luverne Seifert
Ticket buyers will be contacted with a secret link to access the performance before showtime.
