In addition, we have presented over a dozen hour-long variety programs at independent living/assisted living, and rehabilitation facilities, including Wingate Residences at Brewster Place in Brewster, MA (2014 to present), Dycora Transitional Health in Greendale, WI, and Harbor Chase of Shorewood, WI. These programs are either a series of short plays related by subjects (e.g. marriage), or miscellanies consisting of fiction, non-fiction, quotations, poems, and occasionally music, on themes such as the joys of gardening - Garden Variety, Thirteen Ways of Looking at Dogs, Traveling by the Seat of Our Pants, and Women’s Voices. We also present short plays with two or three actors, humorous pieces on marriage, romance, and the challenges of ageing.
