The Marco Players’ production of “Sex Please We’re Sixty” is an American farce of charming and funny explorations into the secret desires of men and women of a certain age who are determined to find what they seem to have lost – their libidos!

The story takes place at Rose Cottage Bed and Breakfast in New England, owned by Mrs. Stancliffe (Carol Clarke). The cottage attracts repeat business (mostly women), who return each year for, maybe a couple of reasons.

Neighbor Bud “the Stud” (Kip Jones) enthusiastically welcomes his “chicks” (Mai Puccio, Rhonda Davis and Cindy Hile) believing that the main reason these women return is to “romance” with him. In the meantime, neighbor and chemist Henry (Joe Kelly), has developed a new pill designed to increase the libido of menopausal women. As you can imagine, there are unsuspected turns that result in eager seniors and a great deal of fun.

written by Michael Parker and Susan Parker, “Sex Please We’re Sixty” is produced by special arrangement with Samuel French, incorporated and is directed by theater veteran Richard Joyce.
