Auditions for Brunswick Little Theatre Production of

The Second Time Around

Play Synopsis:

Senior citizens Samuel Jonas and Laura Curtis, a widower and a widow, strike up a love affair. When they announce plans to live together without marrying so they can keep social security benefits they’d otherwise lose, their children hit the ceiling even though they were never close to their deceased parent and their own marriages leave a lot to be desired. Sam’s daughter is married to her ex analyst, a stuffy neurotic, and Laura’s son has a wife who is paranoid about food additives and their sexual performance. All ends well for the elderly twosome, but not before the entire second generation is in nervous fits.
