From Samuel French:
Written by one of Hollywood's top comedy screenwriters, this hilarious Broadway comedy revolves
around a married couple who are art dealers. Their domestic tranquility is shattered upon the
arrival of the wife's goody goody nerd of a sister, her uptight CPA husband, and her archetypal
Jewish Mother. They are there to try to save their college student daughter from the horrors of
living only for sex. The comic sparks really begin to fly when the mother hits it off with the
elderly minimalist artist who is the art dealer's best client!
"Just when you were beginning to think you were never going to laugh again on Broadway, along
comes Social Security and you realize that it is once more safe to giggle in the
streets. Indeed, you can laugh out loud, joyfully, with, as it were, social security, for the
play is a hoot, and better yet, a sophisticated, even civilized hoot. " - The New York Post
Social Security was originally produced on Broadway by David Geffen and the Schubert
Organization at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre in New York City on April 17, 1986. It was directed
by Mike Nichols and starred Marlo Thomas and Ron Silver.
