SHOW SYNOPSIS

Set in the mid 1980s, the play  focuses on trendy Manhattan art  galleryowners Barbara and David Kahn, whose life is upended when her  housewife sister Trudy deposits their eccentric mother Sophie on the couple’s doorstep while she and her husband Martin head to Buffalo to rescue their sexually precocious college student daughter from a menage a trois with two men. Barbara and David introduce Sophie to suave nonagenarianartistMaurice Koenig, who offers to paint her portrait and soon begins to brighten her life in ways she never expected in her twilight years.  Social Security is an hilarious charming story of what every person seeks at some level; to love and to be loved.
