About the Play
Jean is not moving into a retirement home. She recruits her best friends who are also in their 70s and a high school intern to hatch a bold plan for a Utopian alternative. Formerly the domain of a locally famous Bruce Springsteen cover band, Jean’s garage becomes the stage for a hilarious story about growing into yourself and getting what you want.
