20 pesos

Better Late is part a damn-it-all, Mel Brooks-like feast of sardonic one-liners in denial, and part a sad and caustic plea for marital compassion that could have been penned by an octogenarian Woody Allen, guiltily regretting one of his failed relationships,” wrote the Chicago Tribune, while Variety said “a breezy entertainment on serious themes, Better Late explores love, divorce, aging and death with a mature sensibility and a decidedly mainstream comedic tone…always diverting and admirably unsentimental.”

As the play opens, Julian is forced by a sudden illness to move in with his ex-wife and her current husband. With each passing day the situation spirals further and further out of control. The part of Julian will be read by Steve Schlam, Nora, his ex-wife, by Marty Fraser, Billy, their son, by David Galitzky, and Lee, the current husband, by John Wharton. Lola Smith directs.

Performances start at 7:30pm, or earlier if the house is full. Doors open at 7pm. A 20 peso donation is requested.
