“Not Getting Any Younger”
Written and Performed by Marga Gomez
Developed with Ellen Sebastian Chang
San Francisco, CA, USA
“Wild mix of childhood memory, social satire, reflections on aging, denial of same, confession, evasion and laugh riot.” Highest Rating, SF Chronicle
Marga Gomez tackles the latest generational divides, weaving her commentary through hilarious surreal life vignettes: little Marga visits the worst amusement park ever with her showgirl mom, little Marga attends a dysfunctional birthday party for her childhood nemesis Crazy Lisa and adult Marga tries to get a senior discount at Forever 21. In an energetic and meta 55 minutes Marga looks back on how even an outspoken lesbian can find herself in the closet for women of a certain age.
