This show was inspired by a quip over coffee during the summer of 2005 and was first presented as a staged reading in Keene, NH in August 2006.
What started as a romp around senior sexuality developed into a piece that also focused on the relationships, changing social roles, and the motivating force of recognizing one's mortality in finding renewed passion for life.
It enjoyed its World Premiere at the historic Victoria Theatre in San Francisco in August 2010, where it was nominated for a SF Bay Area Critics Circle Award for "Original Script for a Musical." STAYING NEW is now available for licensing and production.
