A Red Plaid Shirt is a heart-warming comedy focusing on retirement, that important life-stage which brings new experiences and self-discovery. Two friends navigate this unfamiliar territory with the help of their wives. All they know is that one chapter of their lives is over, and the characters are unsure of their next steps. The play is an homage to the classic sitcom: Ralph and Ed, Lucy and Ricky, Rob and Laura.
