Additional Info

Two interwoven one acts, Love Means Never Having to Say You're Forty and Leonard, these plays feature flexible casting since three characters appear in both plays. In the first, a separated middle aged couple are in the connecting suites of a Mexican motelto have a fling. Their accidental confrontation makes them realize the importance of their years together. In the farcical second act, a golden age couple, unmarried because of tax benefits, is in one suite and a group of inept heroin smugglers is in the other.
