Theatre kicks off a short run of Ron Clark's three person comedy, A Bench in the Sun.  The story follows Harold and Burt, two old men who are longtime, perfectly mismatched friends.  Burt is an irritable cynic who wears pajamas all day so he won't hae to undress when he takes his frequent naps.  An ex account, he has spent his life with one woman and one job.  Harold is a well-dressed optimist and stays upbeat about life despite a track record of three failed marriages, five failed businesses and children who won't talk to him.  The geriatrics spend their days philosophizing and bickering on a bench in the garden of their retirement home.  When Adrienne, a former movie startlet, moves into the home, Harold and Burt find something new to argue over and being a "Gumpy Old Men"-style competition for her affections.
