Salt and Pepper, by physicist and playwright Robert Benjamin, is a play about real life situations encountered by seniors. It is humorous and mildly provocative. Eight scenarios show the decision making process involved in finding love, the strength to reach out to new options, dealing with the loss of a spouse, and coping with a life-threatening illness. Author Benjamin handles these problems with deep understanding, grace, courage, and glimpses of humor. The play has a novel interconnection among the scenes, including a “double bookend” structure where the first and last scene are intertwined, as are the second and the next-to-last. Mature characters strive for personal happiness in different situations. Issues include mortality, rekindled romance, healing, and gift-giving. Ms. Johncie Carlson, the Director of the play, is a Culpeper resident who has acted in and directed many productions. She has worked diligently on every detail of the presentation. The ten talented local actors have many years of experience in professional and community theater.
