About the Play


Morning After Grace
by Carey Crim
directed by Janet Allen
January 14 - February 9, 2020

comedy with heart

Three neighbors in a Florida retirement village wake up one morning to find their lives unexpectedly tangled together, adding a new wrinkle—and a new sparkle—to their golden years. Unforeseen complications force them to confront old demons, but laughter and love will help them deal with these issues—if they can accept each other’s helping hands. Nothing is what it seems in this surprising play that shows how retirement can offer a whole new lease on life.

APPROXIMATE RUN TIME: 2 hours, including a 15-minute intermission

Morning After Grace is a modern comedy that contains profanity, sexual situations and simulated drug use. It is recommended for an adult audience. Due to content and length, children under 4 years of age are not permitted in the OneAmerica Mainstage and Upperstage Theatres. Learn more about our attendance policies here.

Artistic Note:
“There aren’t many plays that focus solely on retired and retiring Baby Boomers in a meaningful way. This play is a rare and delightful instance of serving a community of folks who somehow never thought they would age, but are now elders. As one of them, I feel a real kinship to this material that blends humor and real heart-felt insight, creating a lovely and loving theatrical event.”
–Janet Allen, Executive Artistic Director
