Life – or at least a second chance at it – begins at age 70+, as Norm Foster tackles with his typical wit and wisdom in this comedy about love and friendship among those in their twilight years.  

Retired prison guard Doris Mooney has just moved in to Paradise Village, a retirement home in Canmore, Alberta. She quickly befriends Ivy Hoffbauer, a former champion skier who’s taken aback by Doris’ cheerful brashness. Rounding out the trio is dapper Arthur Beech, who has designs on Ivy.  What follows is a riotous tale that will shatter your preconceived notions of what “senior living” ought to be. 

A mirthful and thoughtful companion piece to the widely acclaimed Jonas and Barry in the Home, this refreshing comedy is a testament to living each day to the fullest – regardless of your age or stage in life.

Recommended for ages 13 and up.
