In this semi sequel to 'Men Are Dogs,' four senior women & men try to fight the shrinking economy and their shrinking pocketbooks by opening up a home phone sex service after receiving an unsolicited obscene phone call! This is an adult bawdy comedy and although two characters are reprised from 'Men Are Dogs' the play stands on it's own and a production of the earlier play is not a pre- requisite!

Last night I saw the opening night performance of "The Big Five Oh!" From the very beginning and throughout the entire show, the audience was in stiches. This is a hilarious comedy about a family man approaching and celebrating a milestone birthday. I for one can certainly relate to that. Add in a zany neighbor, and his family, and the story unfolds. I found the characters well developed and loveable ( awesome cast) , and the conversations between them realistic. I have been to many shows here over the last 8 years, and this is definitely one of my favorites.
We just combined dinner at Kings Arms II and "The Big Five-Oh" and had a wonderful meal and a hilarious time at the theater.
We have been regular attendees at the playhouse for over twenty years and try to bring a group of friends every month.
The show was very very funny, will keep up laughing the whole night!!! A must see show!!! All our group “The Fanatics” laughed the night away!!!
'Saw "The Big 5 Oh!" Friday night....VERY VERY FUNNY! Great performances!
Saw the show. The guy who played the drunk at the party was hilarious...I would see him again and again. The cake was good too.
