Dear Family, Friends, and Fans,



Once again, we have been plagued with something beyond our control; COVID-19.  As we all know, social distancing is still being observed and we will not be able to get all of our audience members in seats, nor will the players be able to keep 6 feet apart on the stage.  It is with a tremendously heavy heart that we postpone this play yet again.

Please know we will do our best to keep you (our people-the ones we work so hard to make laugh, cry, and have all the feels) informed.

GTL President


This riotous laugh-out-loud comedy proves growing old doesn’t mean growing feeble. It’s the 4th of July, and the women of Happy Meadows Nursing Home have independence in mind! They’re fed up with the rules, the regulations, and especially the food. When senior resident Holly receives a cry for help from her grandson, she rallies her comrades-in-arms and the women plot a break out. Will Holly and her friends succeed? Perhaps with some fireworks, a large can of creamed corn, and extensive lengths of rope, they might just have what it takes to outsmart the thoroughly vexed retirement home director.

Winner of the  2016 SETC/Stage Rights Ready to Publish Award.
