Why this play? Just Google “senior” and hit “images”. What do you get? Happy people playing outdoors in designer casual clothes and HD sunshine. Is that reality? In OUT OF THE BLUE, our hero has not such an easy time. The story begins when his brain makes an unexpected shift and new thoughts appear that have never, ever been there before. A curtain opens on his next stage of life, and there’s nothing but blackness. He wants change but can’t leave his high-stress job for fear his world – and that of his aging husband – will explode around them both. The pressure puts him near suicide. He must fill in the empty blackness that lies before him if he wants to bring hope back to his life and his marriage. He searches for help and stumbles on an aging wise-woman who magically blends psychology and astrology. With her guidance and the help of ancient Planets, Signs and Houses, he fills in the blackness of his future, mines the birth-marked resources buried in his horoscope, and embraces whatever may come in the last third of life. The story is spiked with comedy from start to finish, because the ironies of life only increase with time and experience. It delivers the raw anger of aging, the grief of releasing the last promise of youth. It’s also a heart-centered romance, as the protagonist gains a precious new friend and rediscovers the strength of the man he married.
