SYNOPSIS: From a locked-down nursing home in the dead of night, they attempt the greatest escape ever. Join this misfit band of “inmates” as they hatch a master plan to escape their dreary nursing home and find something far more important than a baseball game – they find their youth. Watch as their best-laid plans go awry with hilarious results! This group of characters will charm you as the ringleader, the gossip, the grouch, the airhead, the Casanova, and the shy old gal with a surprising amount of moxie put their talents to the test. Funny and heartwarming, this single-set, easy-to-produce play is sure to entertain – and to remind audiences of the importance of a youthful sense of adventure.
