Another version of the endless meeting comedy, “Juniper Lane,” where the debated never answers, but always asks, “Who are these people?” In the retirement community of Canyon, another pedestrian has been hit along Twygate Boulevard, this time at the intersection of Juniper Lane. It is the fifth time in three years, and all of its victims have been the elderly. The answer to this problem is to put up yet another traffic light that will ensnarl traffic even more. While everyone agrees seniors should have a safe access over a busy thoroughfare, a group of young people have had enough. Their appearance at the neighborhood board meeting on this one night will transform the usual rubber stamp agenda into a manic evening of misstatements and misinterpretation. A comedy about humans being human, and about people being people, “Canyon Neighborhood Board” takes a fresh new look at an age old problem the generation gap. Writer: Eric Nemoto. Pages: 122. Note: Has been produced as the stage play, “Juniper Lane.”
