The World to Come

Every night at the SeaBreeze Hebrew Home for the Aging, Fanny, Barbara, Ruth, and Hal gather for their nightly “Supper Club” meeting.  Over scrabble and charades, the Supper Club gang compete, fight, fall in love, and break each others hearts. But as the world crumbles around them, they are forced to contend with questions of aging, legacy, and survival. A coming-of-age story set in a nursing home, THE WORLD TO COME asks how do we as a society care for our elders? And can you still come-of-age at the end of your life?
