This may sound rather trite but, given the current turmoil and tension of the world we know right now, it is important for all of us to build positive relationships with others as we grow older. We will need to feel part of a community no matter where we live or with what activities in which we involve ourselves. Markham Little Theatre’s 2018-2019 season opener, “A Bench in the Sun”, is a story about relationship building and the endurance of friendship and love in our fleeting senior years. It’s a character driven piece where a director, crew and actors must pay careful attention to specifics in setting, sound, staging and characterization for the play to work.
