Sex Please, We’re Sixty

Sex-crazed cougars are yesterday’s news. Now there are grandmas gone wild in the modern little farce Sex Please, We’re Sixty. This fluffy comedy by Michael and Susan Parker takes place at Mrs. Stancliffe’s Rose Cottage Bed & Breakfast, a sweet little inn that seems to attract an inordinate amount of single, menopausal, vacationing women. Next door is resident chauvinist Bud the Stud, who thinks he’s the chick magnet for the place. And on the other side of Mrs. Stancliffe’s inn lives Henry Mitchell, a kind and thoughtful chemist who shows us all that there really are some smart men left in the world. When the ladies at Mrs. Stancliffe’s get wise to Bud’s bad behavior, they decide to get even by replacing his Viagra with one of Mitchell’s new inventions, a little pill designed to increase the libido in menopausal women, called Venusia. See what happens when a man has to deal with his hormones going all out of whack in Sex Please, We’re Sixty. 8:30 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays. Through February 5. Theatre Suburbia, 4106 Way Out West Drive. For information, call 713-682-3525 or visit $12 to $14.
Fridays-Sundays. Starts: Jan. 7. Continues through Feb. 5, 2011
