One-act plays at Evergreen Club

Have you ever found a wallet or purse with money in it, and then debated whether or not to return it to the owner?

Have you ever found a wallet or purse with money in it, and then debated whether or not to return it to the owner? What if there was $3,000 in it? Would you be tempted to keep the money, or not?

That’s the dilemma in Stew Callaghan’s new one-act play, The Wallet. It is the story of an old gentleman who lives in a retirement home and during a walk, finds a wallet. His ultimate decision leads to all kinds of complications, affecting not only himself, but numerous other people.

 

In another scenario, what if you were confronted by a robber at gunpoint who wants all your money, what would you do? Would you turn your money over to him, or would you respond like the stubborn teller in Terryl Paiste’s one-act comedy, Welcome to Acceptance?

 

Both of these plays will be performed on stage in the conference hall of the Florence Filberg Centre, home of the Evergreen Club, April 11 beginning at 1:30 p.m.

Musical entertainment and refreshments will be provided during the intermission. Tickets are $5 and can be obtained at the Filberg Centre office. A portion of the proceeds will be distributed to charities.
