About this show

Theatre by the Blind presents When I'm 64. It's Labor Day weekend, the perfect time for four friends from Yale Drama to reconnect. And what better place than the beach house in Provincetown that was left to all of them by their former acting teacher. Since their graduation back in the 60s, life has dealt them each a different hand: Barb was a sit-com star, Roger teaches theatre at UCLA, Sheila has become Provincetown's librarian and Gar (who has since become blind) now runs New York City's only visually impaired theatre company. The lighthearted reunion suddenly turns serious when Sheila drops a bombshell: she's facing a debilitating illness and wants them to agree to sell the house so she can move into a retirement community. Their reaction to Sheila's news forms the basis for this funny yet touching look at aging--what we lose, what we gain and how we get by with a little help from our friends.
