Theatre Oxford to present ‘The Old People are Revolting’

Published 8:40 am Wednesday, April 17, 2024

The retirees at Sunshine Valley are mad and calling for a revolt! How dare the town council eliminate senior discounts on utilities? That’s the stuff of revolution, and madcap comedy, too, in The Old People are Revolting, a play written by Devon Williamson that Theatre Oxford will bring to the Powerhouse stage April 19 and 20. 

Directing the Theatre Oxford production will be Randy Redd, a veteran of both film and theatre with credits both on and off Broadway in productions such as Million Dollar Quartet and Parade.

The Old People are Revolting, performed in many theaters worldwide, is a play that “shows just how a skillful blend of writer, director, actors, and backstage can produce a comedy that deserves to go on your ‘must-see’ list,” writes the Hawkes Bay Today publication in Hastings, New Zealand.
