One of the great joys of theater can be seeing a show that truly speaks to you, with characters you know like friends (and maybe even one who's just like you). But what about those who are no longer between 20 and 40, the age range most often showcased on stage? Where are the stories that reflect the realities of their lives? That's where Pigs Do Fly Productions comes in, with a mission to produce plays that highlight the actor over 50 as viable, fully involved, and full of life -- just like they really are! Their first production, Fifty Plus -- A Celebration of Life ... As We Know It, features seven 10-minute plays hand-selected out of more than 300 entries. There'll be humor and relatable situations, not just for those age 50 and older, but for everyone. Learn More

When Alex catches the eye of her boss Nick Hurley, their romance shows her the meaning of love and drives her ambition to pursue her dream.
