This is Bob Larbeys’  (better known for The Good Life and Ever decreasing Circles) first play and winner of The Evening Standard Best  Comedy Award in 1986. So ‘old fashioned?, dated ?? Not when the subject matter itself is ageless.

Beautifully and poignantly written it is set in a Surrey rest home. Humour is how two elderly men Cooper and Aylott,  cope with the effects that aging can have on the mind , bladder and body. Throw in the awkward monthly family visiting rituals ( Julia and Peter), a kind nurse (Wilson) and enthusiastic  cleaner (Mrs B) and you have a tragi-comedy that makes you laugh ,then pause…………then think…………

Parts to be cast:

Cooper - Male 60+

Aylott - Male 60+

Nurse Wilson - Female 25+

Mrs Baker - Female any age

Julia - Female 40+

Peter - Male 40+

Playing ages are a guide only! There’s always make up!

Directed by Dawn Gazey-Lewis, new to directing at the Priory but an experienced actress and director in other groups.

Dawn has 3 main work ethics

Teamwork- everyone is important on both sides of the curtain

Hard Work- especially line learning

Fun!
