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?
MARTY – LATE 50s TO EARLY 60s
Recently retired English teacher. Has not planned any activities for his retirement and is fighting boredom. Seriously considering buying a motorcycle.
DEB – LATE 50s
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 50s TO EARLY 60s
Retired. Fred has convinced himself that he has every disease known to man – a moaning hypochondriac.
GLADYS – LATE 50s
Fred’s wife. Much like Deb in her dealings with a newly retired husband.
