HART Theatre’s side-splitting comedy “A Facility for Living” by Katie Forgette is showing now through Aug. 18.
The comedy, which is billed as “The Golden Girls meets One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Next” will leave you in stitches. The show is set in the not so distant future when the healthcare system has fallen apart.
For the residents of Federal Nursing Home #273, every day is a monotonous cycle of pills, old Ronald Reagan movies, and mandatory bedtimes all overseen by the killjoy head nurse.
When a new resident arrives and shakes things up, this band of misfits hatch an outrageous plan to break all the rules and in the process rediscover purpose and dignity in the face of a system stacked against them.
A Facility for Living opened Aug. 9 and will wrap up this weekend.
