Written by Katie Forgette, “A Facility for Living” is a modern theater of the absurd that examines how society treats the elderly and contemplates human mortality. In an alternate timeline, Dick Cheney was elected to President and Medicare collapsed. After this occurs, retired actor Joe Taylor moves into a prison that has been turned into an elderly care facility. He encounters other senior citizens. They rediscover purpose and meaning in a system bent on dehumanizing their existence. This play is suitable for a PG-13 audience.
Directed by St. Augustine actor and storyteller Margaret Kaler, the local cast includes Lou Agresta as Joe, Brad Segal as Wally, E-Rock Rasmussen as Kevin, Mary Jung-Martin as Judy, Natalie Beltrami as Mitzi, and Rhona Bentz as Nurse Claudia.
