Additional Info

Pathos and wry humor mark this play about a group of elderly actors and actresses living in retirement on a converted Mississippi River showboat. The characters are a cross section of theatre people: an aging matinee idol who still tries to be Don Juan, a homely character actress, the second banana and a seductive lady who likes good times and longs for night clubs. Conflict arises with the arrival of an ex husband and busy lover.
