By David Lindsay-Abaire
Directed by Sean Langenecker

Performed at the Bartell Theatre on the Evjue stage
Marilyn and Abby, two residents in a nursing home, unwillingly share a room and engage in a bet to acquire single occupancy. Things escalate quickly and they both go to extremes, until death and family finally put an end to the contest. A comedy.
