1. ‘Old Ringers’ at The Marco Players

On Oct. 18 and 19, meet Joe Simonelli, playwright and author of “Old Ringers” for a talk-back immediately following the show. Critics describe the play as a crowd-pleasing comedy masterpiece.

The play is a timely take on how four senior women open a home phone sex service after receiving an unsolicited obscene phone call. This is an adult bawdy comedy that balances obscenity with drier subject like the shrinking economy and social security checks; so, the play is timely and believable with adult humor that is tastefully delivered.

“Old Ringers,” produced by special arrangement with Joe Simonelli  is on stage Oct. 16 through Nov. 3, at The Marco Players Theater, Marco Town Center Mall, 1089 N. Collier Blvd., Marco Island.

Shows are 8 p.m., Wednesday through Saturday, and 3 p.m., Sundays, and are $32 or $34. Attend the first week of the show and automatically be entered in a drawing to win a dinner cruise for two on The Marco Island Princess.

Tickets are on sale at TheMarcoPlayers.com or by calling the box office at 239-642-7270.
