Comedy and romance combine in Coach House's 'Social Security'

Published:

Join Coach House Theatre this holiday season for the comedy "Social Security" by Andrew Bergman.

Chic Manhattan couple Barbara and David Kahn (Dede Klein and Richard Worswick) have their lives thrown into chaos when Barbara's elderly and eccentric mother (Maureen Johnson) is left on their doorstep. The mother's attitude improves greatly, however, when she meets a 98-year-old artist (Richard Figge) who sweeps her off her feet.

Nancy Cates is the director.

This play, Coach House's mainstage salute to its new Elder Theatre series, contains mildly suggestive language.

"Social Security" will be presented Nov. 15 through Dec. 16. Curtain times are Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m., with Sunday matinees at 2:30 p.m. Dinner or brunch is available to all theater patrons prior to every performance at the Akron Woman's City Club next door.

There will be a special $12 preview performance Nov. 15 at 8 p.m. The official opening night is Nov. 16. Group rates for holiday gatherings or office celebrations are available.

There are no performances on Thanksgiving weekend.

Tickets are $18. The box office opens one hour before the show.

Coach House Theatre is at 732 W. Exchange St., in Akron, next to the Akron Woman's City Club, and at the corner of W. Exchange and N. Portage Path. Reservations are recommended by calling our box office at 330-434-7741.
