    Don't touch the seniors doughnuts, they will come for you! Absolutely hilarious and well done!

    A hilarious short play that beautifully captures the deceptively narrow concerns of a group of older women on a senior bowling league. The last remaining doughnut becomes a metaphor for so much more—symbolizing nothing less than a deep yearning for more out of life. Great roles for an underserved group—older women.
