For the second production of its 31st season, the Lemon Bay Playhouse will present “Later Life,” written by A.R. Gurney. This comedy/drama, directed by Jenni Elliott, will open on Wednesday, Oct. 18, and run through Sunday, Nov. 5.
Austin has spent his entire life convinced that something terrible is bound to happen to him. One night at a party, overlooking Boston Harbor, he has the pleasure of rekindling a romance begun almost 30 years ago with Ruth. Comically, and sometimes painfully, these two people rediscover each other and themselves while a bevy of free-spirited other guests rally behind them and remind them of the infinite possibilities that life holds, should one only choose to pursue them.
