Synopsis: The eternal struggle of the rebel against the inflexible rules and regulations of the 'establishment' is more than entertaining... it creates even greater awareness of the worth of the individual in today's impersonal society. These values have garnered awards for Peg Kehret and this thoroughly engrossing play. The Happy Hollow Rest Home brings together a variety of delightful characters, all of whom want more from life than their restricted existence allows. When 83 year-old Clara begins taking hula lessons, holding seances and sending out for pepperoni pizza, the other residents are overjoyed... and the manager is dismayed. Simply set in Clara's room, the play adroitly combines with wisdom as a young aide, a lawyer and a policeman join forces to ensure that Happy Hollow's group spirit is allowed to grow. From the hilarious poker party to the touching final scene, this play offers charm, insight and heart-warming humor.
