The Summer Theatre premiere of this comedy had the audiences roaring with laughter as they saw two old enemies reunited after forty years to settle an estate which turns out to be a pornographic business. In New York City two elderly gentlemen have been summoned to dispose of articles left by a deceased classmate. They become involved with a stripper, a small town girl from the Midwest, an underworld character and a scheming bellhop. A running commentary of "Fun City" is provided by off stage voices of a lady of the evening and one of her not too deferential clients as well as radio broadcasts of muggings, suicides, drug raids and other happy events. The two senior citizens get a new lease on life after becoming implicated in a porno racket, befriending two damsels in distress and thwarting a gangster.
"Witty lines, biting comments on our status symbols, runs the whole gamut of Broadway jargon... audience laughed all the way through." - Manchester Journal
"Filled with excitement, bright and sometimes bawdy but always entertaining." - Salem Press, NY
Last of the Class was first produced by the Caravan Theatre, Inc. at the Dorset Playhouse, Vt., Summer Theatre on August 21, 1975.
