The popular Second Act Troupe returns to San Marcos in “Dealing With Life,” a trio of one-act comedies revolving around life’s little flaws and foibles.

The Price Seniors Center, 222 West San Antonio, will host the performances which will take place Friday and Saturday at 7:30 p.m.  An optional dinner at the Price Center will be served at 6:30 p.m.

The three one-act comedic plays featured are “Technical Tsunami,” “Hello Ma!” and  “Riverview, Tape 23.”

In “Technical Tsunami,” a couple is technologically challenged by current communications tools. “Hello Ma!” deals with a woman who cannot decide which of her two suitors to marry and calls “Ma” for advice. In “Riverview, Tape 23” a magazine reporter interviews residents of a nursing home for an article on the “good old days” and gets an earful of the truth from a spunky resident.

The Second Act Troupe is a company of seasoned professionals that produces several productions each year. The Price Center stage’s intimacy is a particularly good match for the kind of plays the highly skilled troupe produces.

Tickets for the play with dinner are $22 and tickets for the play only are $12. Dinner patrons are invited to bring a bottle of wine, should they want it, for their meals.

For reservations or more information, call (512) 618-3355 at any time.
