Samuel French Off Off Broadway Short Play Festival

Winner! Samuel French Off Off Broadway Short Play Festival

A stirring, honest play about the dissapointments that come at the end of life, offering two strong roles for Senior actors.

At the end of their lives, while sitting on the patio of their upscale, lake-side Connecticut home, Hari and Walt wonder if they'd do it all again. As they watch boats on the water capsize, they discuss their dissapointment: their marriage has been difficult, their adult children have left then, and they are both filled with regret and sadness.  The conversation is the first time they've truly been honest with each other, and the pain of these truth result in a tragic ending.

Winner of the 2nd Annual Samuel French Off Off Broadway Short Play Festival.
