How do you cope with retirement? Even more pressing, how do you cope with your husband’s retirement? Join Marty, Deb, Fred and Gladys in this light comedy as they seek out new interests to occupy their now abundant leisure time.  Choices range from art classes and wood-working projects to rediscovering your youth on a motorcycle, or becoming an obsessive hypochondriac. Middle ground may seem hard to find, but that’s what teamwork – and marriage -- is about, right?

Please prepare a two-minute comedic monologue. Cold readings from the script may also be required. If called back, you will be asked to read from the script with other actors. Please bring a resume and recent head-shot.

If you would like to read the play before auditioning, the script is on reserve at the Arts Desk, 5th floor, Toronto Reference Library, 789 Yonge Street, and at the Community Desk of the Toronto Public Library, Cedarbrae Branch, at 545 Markham Road in Scarborough.

For information, or to book an audition time, email Alison Overington at

If you must cancel on your audition night, please call the STG unit at 416 439 5349.

Roles Available
Role Description
Late 50’s, early 60’s – Recently retired English teacher. Has not planned any activities for his retirement
and is fighting boredom. Seriously considering buying a motorcycle.
Deb   Late 50’s – Marty’s wife. Has taken on a few hobbies of her own to cope with retirement, and is definitely against Mary’s wish to have a motorcycle.
Fred   Late 50’s, early 60’s – Retired. Fred has convinced himself that he has every disease known to man – a moaning hypochondriac.
Gladys   Late 50’s – Fred’s wife. Much like Deb in her dealings with a newly retired husband.
