A Facility for Living
A Facility for Living at Barter Theatre
February 15 & 21, 2018
The Golden Girls meets One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest in this hilarious and possibly disturbing story of what life may be like in the not-so-distant-future.
This twisted comedy takes a serious subject and gives it a funny and biting edge. Nursing home residents Judy, Wally and Mitzie are housed in a government-run, re-purposed penitentiary (because the prisons have been outsourced to China) and Head Nurse Claudia is a real pill.
Suffice it to say that resident morale is a little down. All is doom and gloom until Joe Taylor, a new resident and former actor arrives. Fresh new life is about to be breathed into Nursing Home #273 whether Nurse Claudia and her orderlies approve or not!
Joe Taylor and his band of misfits hatch an outrageous plan to break all the rules and in the process rediscover purpose and dignity in the face of a system mightily stacked against them.
Don’t miss the funniest play set in a nursing home you will ever see.
