The Age of Caring

Ah, the circle of life. No, we're not talking about that lion-hearted Elton John song, we're talking about the realization that you're born a being in need of care and you ultimately end up that way too, should you live well into old age. Sure, you have a baby, fully prepared to wipe it's mouth and it's little ass, but isn't it a day-brightener to think someday that little babe will wipe yours as well? Now what if you have no kiddos and a jet-set lifestyle which is suddenly interrupted by the instruction to care for an aging parent? Find out what happens by checking out Social Security (written by Andrew Bergman, screenwriter of Blazing Saddles and other comedies) at Contemporary Theatre of Dallas, 5601 Sears St., Friday through September 2. Show times are 7:30 p.m. Thursdays, 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays and 2 p.m. Sundays (no matinee this one, though). Tickets are $22 and $27. Visit contemporarytheatreofdallas.com. FYI: The show contains adult (and we’re guessing some “old bitty”) language and is rated PG-13.
Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m.; Thursdays, 7:30 p.m.; Sundays, 2 p.m. Starts: Aug. 10. Continues through Sept. 2
