Hunker Down by Robert F. Benjamin is a timely, heartwarming romantic comedy about older, single adults grappling with isolation during COVID times. During the spring 2020 shutdown, out of desperation, a lonely widow (Bari, played by Anne Myers) pleads to visit with her curmudgeonly neighbor (Kevin, played by Tim Fishbaugh) to meet up. He begrudgingly agrees to meeting on Zoom which sets them off on a journey that surprises them both. .

This live show is presented on Zoom.  A talk-back with the playwright and the actors immediately follows the live performance. Celebrate the anniversary of the shutdown and the reopening of our lives as the vaccine does its magic.

There is no cost for admission, but donations will help Firehouse be ready and able to present live shows again later in 2021.  Learn more and claim your spot
