By Michael Tucker
Directed by Nadia Tass
With Mark Blum, Jill Eikenberry, John Glover, Mark Linn-Baker, Jodi Long, and Ellen Parker
Three couples in their golden years, thick as thieves, are gathered at Sunny and Jer's farmhouse to celebrate milestone birthdays that span three decades. The foundation of their long friendship is honesty and support – as well as a commitment to the enjoyment of food, wine and laughter. They're so close that Sunny suggests that they all move in together—to live and work and assist one another as they grow older.
Their companionship is put to the test, however, when a marital betrayal is discovered. The bonds of loyalty and truth are explored in this mature comedy.
