Weekend Comedy

  • Overview

    Weekend Comedy finds a middle-aged couple and a young couple accidentally renting the same cottage for a three-day weekend. After the couples decide to share the cottage, a clash of generations ensues. Jeanne and Sam Bobrick fill their script with laughter and perceptive looks at aging, marriage, and happiness.

    Weekend Comedy will be performed without intermission.

    Weekend Comedy will be performed in repertory with I and You. To perform in repertory means to present a series of plays over a given span of time. These shows will alternate weeks, so look at the schedule closely.
