Using volunteer drivers in conjunction with their professional drivers, At Home In Darien has arranged for transportation at about 6:30 p.m. Seniors can be picked up at their homes and will be returned home safely after the show.
Theatre 308 honors the 80th anniversary of the premiere of Our Town with a production of Thornton Wilder’s classic American play. Set in Grover’s Corners, New Hampshire at the turn of the 20th century — but still resonant with a modern-day audience — Our Town explores life, death, all that goes unnoticed. This production features a special onstage seating arrangement that will immerse audience members in the story.
“We are delighted to offer this opportunity to Darien seniors,” said Gina Blum, executive director of At Home in Darien. “It is our hope that seniors who don’t drive, don’t like to drive at night, or who might otherwise miss the show, will take advantage of this special event. The evening will be an opportunity for seniors to socialize and enjoy an interesting play.”
For more information, and to reserve a seat and transportation to and from the show, please call At Home In Darien at 203.655.2227.
At Home In Darien is a non-profit 501 (c) 3 organization whose mission is to help Darien seniors live independently, comfortably and with dignity in their own homes and the community as long as possible.
