Performance Dates: Monday 11th – Saturday 16th February 2019
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!
