Bringing you the best performances by local playwrights, the Playgroup LLC is kicking off the new year with Joe Feinstein's Last of the Aztecs. In a story of what it means to lose our loved ones and adapt to the changes around us, our protagonist, Danny, embarks on a personal journey to face life without the guidance of the beloved members of the Aztec Athletic and Social Club.
Before he officially became the last member of the Aztecs, Danny's life was peachy keen. After all, he's married to his childhood sweetheart and is a proud mentor and coach to his favorite granddaughter, Allie. As the membership of the club diminishes, Danny is left to endure the meaning of being the last one standing when the ghost of his best friend, Walter, starts to haunt his every move. Life continues to throw him a curve ball after his wife's health and his granddaughter's sexuality come into question. The issue is, how will Danny deal with all of these hardships while warding off the ghosts of his past?
As part of a series of three performances, Last of the Aztecs will play at the Empire Stage, located at 1140 N. Flagler Drive, Fort Lauderdale, on Sunday. The performance will begin at 5 p.m. Tickets can be purchased by calling 954-678-1496 or visiting smarttix.com. Visit theplaygroupllc.com.
