ABOUT TIME takes place in the condominium kitchen of an old married couple. Over the course of the day from breakfast and lunch to dinner and a late snack, the couple talk about everything under the sun, especially food, sex, children and aging. She is getting slower than she used to be; in fact, it takes all morning to chop vegetables. He cannot move around quite as fast as he once did. Neither see their children as much as they would like. Yet both certainly have their wits about them as the dialogue snaps and crackles its way through the four scenes. Faced with the thought of mortality, they grapple with what it means to share—and to come to the end of—a life together.
This moving and compassionate comedy-drama examines food, sex and aging from the perspective of a couple who have spent a lifetime together and who know their time is coming to an end. "There is fun to be had with Tom Cole's ABOUT TIME." —NY Magazine. "Humor is one of the essential factors in survival during the aging process, and I have just had several comforting and fortifying hours of laughter." —NY Newsday. "ABOUT TIME has an edge of stylization reminiscent of Beckett's minimalism and astutely depicts the concerns of the aged." —BackStage.
