By Eugene Stickland
Directed by Randy Read


The world of middle-aged male crisis and angst is visited with broad humour and gentle wit in Eugene Stickland’s comedy, Midlife. Jack suddenly confronts his identity and feels hopelessly trapped in a lifestyle he thinks is constraining. His sudden awareness of the acute passing of time catapults him into an hilarious quest for a new romantic relationship. He thinks his new life and playing golf – A LOT OF GOLF! – will solve his problems but what he discovers is unexpected. A unique theatrical experience, Midlife probes contemporary relationships and the stumbling blocks to intimacy in our age of chat rooms and downsizing. Midlife takes a comic and heartfelt look at relationships and the corporate world in this age when 50 is supposedly the new 30!

The Guild is thrilled to have, as our guest director, Randy Read of New Stages Theatre Company newstages@symatico.ca
