The Vero Beach Theatre Guild performance, A Bench in the Sun opens tonight (September 18) and continues through September 29. Harold and Burt, longtime friends and joined at their arthritic hips by the bonds of time, live in a retirement home and spend their days on a bench in the garden bickering. A once famous actress has just moved in, whose flirtatious ways catch the eyes and hearts of the pair, giving them something new to argue over in this wise, moving but most of all, very funny and sunny comedy.
