The Hitch-Hiker & Sorry, Wrong Number by Lucille Fletcher


Sure Thing & The Philadelphia by David Ives

Light’s Out is a compilation of four 1 Act plays directed by The Actors’ Group Joseph P. Laub, Jr.  Two of the four act shows are done “radio style” meaning the actors tell the story in a radio show format.

The first show is “The Hitch-Hiker” written by Lucille Fletcher. It is a mystery play about Ronald Adams who is travelling from Brooklyn, NY to California to see the country. On his way cross country, he sees a hitch-hiker who seems to invade his very existence. Is he seeing things or does the man prey on his mind. We will find out at the end of the show.

The second show “Sure Thing” us a comedy by David Ives and it involves two people who meet at a cafe, and, through the sounding of a bell, change their stories with hilarious results.

The third show “The Philadelphia” explores the fact the everyone has to be somewhere and involves two friends and a waitress who meet at a cafe and discuss life’s issues through different cities and states. The fact is that everyone is in a Philadelphia whether you like it or not. People who live in Philadelphia will especially enjoy this one act show.

The last show is “Sorry, Wrong Number” which was a radio play and a movie with Agnes Morehead and later Barbara Stanwick.  It is about an elderly, prejudiced woman who overhears plans to kill an elderly woman. Through the phone, she attempts to find out who is the killer. The end of the show really proves who the killer might be and who is the victim.

What Residents Say

"In my nine years at PPH, I’ve grown to like it very much. At first, I felt like a stranger and then as I began to talk to people, we increasingly became good friends. A way to meet people is to join clubs. I’m now part of the PPH Auxiliary. I love helping with their flea markets because you never know what you can find. Recently, I’ve joined an evening quilting class. I love that I can continue to enjoy my life outside of PPH while experiencing the offers here.…especially the pool! Everything is just so convenient.

– Lucille Hite, Independent Living resident

What Families Say

"My mom is sooo happy at PPH, I can’t even describe it in strong enough words. She’s met so many new friends and these ladies do EVERYTHING together! She sees Dad every day in Pathways, but can have her life too. She’s gone to so many activities and I think I’ve already been to Scoops with her at least 15 times. She loves the dining room and Bistro too. My sister, Ilene, and I are so delighted that Mom is happy.......Wow, it feels like Mom’s been there about 2 years—but it’s only 2 months!! That’s how comfortable and natural it feels for her – and for all of us.

– Rhonda Frenkel, daughter of resident Bernice Segal
