How things change. 90 is the new 30 in the play Ageless by the Bay Area's Bridgette Dutta Portman. It's set in a world where everyone, except for one woman, has taken a pill that keeps them from aging. (If only!) My co-host Eli Wirtschafter sat in on a rehearsal with Quantum Dragon, a theater group devoted to fantasy and science fiction. Bay Area resident and playwright Portman told Eli this play gave her the freedom of classic speculative fiction -- the ability to hold up a mirror to our own society, and our own aversion to death and dying. Go ahead, blame my generation of Baby Boomers. Details here.
