*Psalm Ministries out of Birmingham, Alabama is behind a home grown play called “Ain’t No Fool Like an Old Fool.”
The production, written and produced by George W. Stewart, takes you into the lives of Abe and Sadie Jones and their longtime friend Fred Williams. Abe, a retired R&B singer is now living with Fred because Sadie has kicked him out of their home after forty years of marriage. The problem stems from Abe and Fred’s recent “experiment” with sexual enhancement drugs.
“Ain’t No Fool Like An Old Fool” addresses the challenges that senior citizens face as they grow older and deal with new and unsuspecting changes. Our primary focus of this urban socio drama is the impact of the sexual enhancement drugs and the increase of sexually transmitted diseases.
Last Psalm’s George W. Stewart shares, “This play will open our eyes to some very serious issues that have become silent killers in the lives of senior citizens, thereby affecting all of us.”
As we laugh at their encounters, we bemoan the tragic outcome that occurs in the play and too often in real life.
“Ain’t No Fool Like An Old Fool” has been presented in conjunction with The 100 Black Men, The Southern Christian Leadership Conference, Coahoma Community College, The Omega Psi Phi Fraternity. Also, planned are upcoming dates with The AME Church and The NAACP. The play is currently touring the country and also has a planned date in the Bahamas.
