Colonial Players is capping its 60th season with a sparkling comedy about a couple grappling with their version of the seven-year itch. A major bonus of CP's excellent season was discovering American playwright David Lindsay-Abaire in October with Rabbit Hole and now being treated to another of his works, Wonder of the World, at the end of the season. Lindsay-Abaire, who was recently nominated for a Tony as author of the book for the musical Shrek, established his comedic gifts with Wonder, which premiered on Broadway in October 2003.

And she was stranded in Hawaii for 105 days in 1979 during an airline strike. In July, at age 89, Haifley visited Alaska, where she saw glaciers and had a run-in with a bear. With her Alaskan adventure, Haifley boasts that she has now traveled to all 50 states.
