Seniors of the Sahara
By Barbara Pease Weber
Directed by Doris Tropp
In Seniors of the Sahara, Sylvie Goldberg, a respectable retired New Jersey school teacher, brings home more than just souvenirs upon returning from her grandson’s wedding in Israel. Sylvie’s troubles begin when she realizes that the old teapot she purchased at an outdoor market is actually a priceless relic containing a geriatric genie “Eugene” who has a bad back and a penchant for vodka and V8. Keeping Eugene a secret from her three best friends, Mabel, Thelma and Fannie, proves to be nearly as difficult as protecting herself from Eugene’s former master who follows Sylvie home and threatens her at knifepoint. Be careful what you wish for Sylvie Goldberg! You never know, it might come true.
“It's like watching Golden Girls meets Aladdin.”
