"Is There Life After Fifty?" is a new comedy by Cynthia Hayes DiSavino that flirts with a topical theme: the aging of the Baby Boomer generation. Three couples who all raised their kids on the same street have found a way to keep in touch after they move to new cities. Each year, on Labor Day weekend, the friends vacation together. This year, the ladies have planned a little surprise: a healthy, all-natural weekend at a trendy health resort, complete with organic food and exercise. The men, who really come for the beer and snacks, are not pleased when they find out. Tensions esculate into an all-out battle of the sexes and the cabin is divided, literally, into the men against the women. They battle over health food, exercise, and pizza, The Godfather, rock and roll, hot tubs, hot flashes, tummy tucks and their refusa to become middle-aged!
