Aging Career Waitress Featured in World Premiere of Counter Attack

Residents of AgeSong Bayside Park are looking forward to attending the world premiere of Counter Attack, a comedy about the importance of an aging career waitress. Stagebridge, the nation’s oldest senior theater company, unites playwright Joan Holden and director Sharon Lockwood with Joan Mankin as Marlene, an aging waitress and SF Mime Troupe alums for a poignant look at the charged subjects of aging, career, and family dynamics. The play is loosely based on the award-winning book Counter Culture by Candacy Taylor (featured in the New Yorker and SF Chronicle).
