Based on declassified files that were held in secret for more than 50 years, this play is a fictional and farcical romp through this steamy footnote in American history. Learn More

  5. The Old Fart Plays OC1000

    The Old Fart Plays

    By Deborah Ann Percy and Arnold Johnston.

    Product Code: OC1000

    • Comedy | Drama


    • Livestream and Record & Stream Rights Available

    The Old Fart Plays is a collection of one-act plays that focus on characters of “a certain age” or beyond. Rather than a lugubrious concentration on theme, the plays deal—in one way or another—with the various challenges of aging but are mindful of plot, character and humor. If there is an overarching theme, it may be found in the words of E. E. Cummings: “love is the every only god.” Together, the pieces could make a fine evening’s showcase for a theatre company’s mature performers. Learn More
