The Shickles


The Shickles is a comedy about love, sex, death, and the sweetness of life. "At every moment in life you have an ice cream cone in one hand and you also have your foot in a pile of dog crap. The degree to which you enjoy the ride is where you place your focus.” This is the 'crap or cone' philosophy of life espoused by Elroy and Nanna Shickles, a couple married for 70 years and who die holding hands on their 90th birthday. In the wake of their death, their grandchildren, Jason and Margot Shickles, find themselves struggling to navigate the bitter sweet nature of love and relationships.
