A different kind of 'Social Security' takes the stage at Chanticleers

Submitted By Suzan Lorraine

Barbara and David, art dealers in the center of New York City, are living a life of sophistication and beautiful surroundings. Their social life is filled with famous artists and special events, but that's about to change: Barbara's not so happy sister, Trudy, and her husband are about to "dump" their mother, Sophie, on the New York doorstep so they can focus on their adolescent daughter's shenanigans, and all hell is going to break loose! In this funny and poignant play, everyone finds their social "security" upended.

"Social Security" was written by Andrew Bergman of "Blazing Saddles" fame. Directed by Michael Kasin, the play features Loralee Windsor as Sophie, Marsha Howard as Barbara, Edward Kimak as an elderly famous artist, Tim Holt as David, Siobhan O'Brien as Trudy, and Stuart Fink as Martin.

Performances begin on Friday, July 26, with the traditional Chanticleers opening night gala. The show runs through August 18 on Friday and Saturday evenings at 8 p.m. and on Sundays at 6 p.m. (no Sunday performance on opening weekend).

Tickets and reservations are available at chanticleers.org or (510) SEE-LIVE. General admission is $18; seniors (60+) and students are $15. Bargain night tickets on Saturday, July 27 are $13. Groups of 10 and over are discounted.
