“Seniors of the Sahara” is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC.
Directed by Gaylene Branton
Sylvia Goldberg, a respectable retired New Jersey school teacher, brings home more than just souvenirs upon returning from her grandson’s wedding in Israel. Sylvie’s troubles begin when she realizes that the old teapot she purchased at an outdoor market is actually a priceless relic containing a geriatric genie, Eugene. Keeping Eugene a secret from her three best friends proves to be nearly as difficult as protecting herself from Eugene’s former master. Seniors of the Sahara is a magical romantic comedy for seniors and “juniors” of all ages.
