We open our 98th season with Social Security, the hilarious comedy about a couple of trendy New York art dealers, David and Barbara Kahn, whose lives are upended when her mother comes to live with them. Barbara’s nerdy sister Trudy and up-tight CPA husband Martin make a surprise visit to the Kahns, informing them that they have had enough of caring for the cantankerous Sophie, and need to go off to their daughter’s college to save her from the horrors of sex. Written by Andrew Bergman (screenwriter of Blazing Saddles, Soapdish and Honeymoon in Vegas), Social Security is sure to hit home with anyone who has dealt with the joys and challenges of caring for an elderly parent.
Directed by James Sulanowski and featuring JoAnn Bromley, Janette Gregorian, Lee Hakeem, Joyce Leven, Mark E. Lima and David Mann.
