A play by Jeanie Okimoto. Directed by Chaim Rosemarin.
Dr. Albert Paugh is flunking retirement. After selling his Vashon Island veterinary practice, he soon finds himself not only lost without his work, but suddenly single. His efforts to carve out a new life, both as a bachelor and a retiree, only leave him feeling like his golden years are fast becoming years of gloom. His regrets pile up until he moves to Baker’s Beach where he gets to know a very special neighbor, learns that friends are the family you choose, and finds a new sense of purpose.
Adapted from the novel by the same name, this romantic comedy is rich with Vashon scenes (and dogs!) The Reinvention of Albert Paugh is an affirmation of renewal and hope that sparkles with humor and will delight the young of heart of any age.
