Gulfport Community Players Present “Take The Couch”

Published on October 16, 2019

"Take the Couch" an Original Comedy in Two Acts by Connie Schindewolf is a hilarious look into the lives of recent empty nesters, Steve and Natalie, as their weekend alone is obliterated by the troubles of their irresponsible family. Running November 7th-17th at the Catherine Hickman Theater in Gulfport, Fl. Get more info and buy tickets at

This riotous comedy is sure to be a fun date night out. Another smash hit from playwright Connie Schindewolf, the play follows the recent empty nesters, Steve and Natalie, as they embark on their very first weekend alone.

Their plans for a steamy weekend alone on their couch with only the adult channel as company, are ruined when their family descends back upon the house in a cacophony of “babies, dogs, bare balls, winos, and Peaches”.

With ticket sales already breaking records for the Gulfport Community Players, this one is bound to be a sell-out. With familiar faces like Ron Goldstein as Steve and Cynthia Hoffman as Natalie and newcomers to the troop like Elvis Rosero as Gary the Cop and Colleen Romero as Sarah, fun is sure to be had by all.

Bring your friends but leave the kiddies at home as this hilarious show does deal with some adult themes.

The show runs from Thursday, November 7th, 2019 through Sunday, November 17th, 2019 with shows every Thursday through Saturday night at 8:00 PM and 2:00 PM matinees on Saturdays and Sundays.
