About the Play:

Solace at Twilight is a full-length dramatic comedy by Diane Shaffer. Two short plays that capture with spunky bittersweet comedy of the blaze of life that often precedes death. These plays may be performed separately or as an evening of entertainment.

Last Respects: Norman flees from the hospital where he is dying of cancer to smoke one last cigarette in the park where he has been grounds keeper his entire adult life. (Cast: 4 female, 5 male)

Last Requests: Casey arranges a meeting with her lifelong love from whom she has been estranged. In their favourite cafe, she tells an unsuspecting Brian she has cancer. Abetted by a gay waiter, a wine loving fortune teller and some cafe regulars, the star crossed lovers are reunited and Casey's request to be buried next to Brian is lovingly granted. (Cast: 4 female, 3 male)
