A monodrama for an actress. Hana Sheinmann had to move to an elderly home, under her family pressure. The elderly home is next to a school, so Hana burst into one of the classes and confides to the children, revealing the upside downs in her life story. She also plays the accordion, discusses love at an old age and consults with her new friends on how she should live the new chapter in her life called “the Golden Years”.
The play was specially written for Getta Luca, a veteran Israeli actress.

Critics

This is education at its best. Even grown ups are afraid to talk about it to children, because they don't know how. This is a work of art worth a bravery medal.

The kids loved the old woman. This is a wonderful and successful play.

An impressive piece of theatre.
The supervisor of Social Education, Ministry of Education in Israel, May 31, 1984

Great acting in a play that opens to children the world of old people. A heart full of poetic writing and an actress who is a flesh and blood volcano.
