Getting Old with Roche and Tate

Humorists David Roche and Terri Tate take the bite out of “Growing Old” at O’Hanlon Center for the Arts on Saturday February 11 at 7pm.

Having been blessed with disease and disfigurement that allowed them to get a jump on aging, humorist David Roche and Terri Tate, feel qualified to advise their peers who are now catching up with them!  In casual conversation, Terri and David will share their hard-won wisdom on changing appearance and bodily functions, eating problems, facing death and sex or lack thereof.  Come and have your deepest questions answered to east the adjustment and delight in your dotage.
