NOT CONSTANTINOPLE

“An elderly couple settles into the Witness Protection Program in a gated community in Boca Raton. The husband unwittingly befriends a hit man with a contract on him. But when the husband develops Alzheimer’s, the hit man develops a conscience: why kill a guy who won’t even know his own name soon? Time to send another hit man – a woman with an MBA. Yes, this is a dark comedy.”

Runs through June 20. Buy tickets and get more details.
