What previously forbidden subject is now a hot topic for baby boomers and beyond? Hot Flashes is a fast-paced, highly original comedy about menopause which has been delighting audiences throughout the United States and abroad.
Seeing it through the eyes of women is one thing but now seeing it through the eyes of a man proves more than a challenge says director Jackson Foltyn but a learning experience in what women endure once they have reached maturity. For the first time we get a different perspective and a deeper appreciation of menopause.
"While Hot Flashes is a play that speaks specifically to women 'of a certain age', it has been striking responsive chords with members of both sexes and a wide range of ages. By turns funny and insightful, wildly hilarious and poignant, broadly comic and poetic, it breaks new ground in presenting issues about menopause and aging which have only recently begun to be discussed, and also provides the theatrical excitement of well-crafted scenes, full of heart and humor."
