Growing Old Disgracefully – 22nd March 2008

Moving and touchingly funny, this will remind us that getting older doesn’t mean that life gets more boring!

In Act One, Michael (a classical actor) and Tommy (a 2nd rate song and dance man) both now live in an actor’s retirement home. Their ‘love/hate’ relationship makes for some hilarious situations and caustic ‘one-liners’. The arrival of a new, female, resident throws their world upside down when Michael realizes that she is a lost love from his earlier career. The new guest sadly now suffers from Alzhiemers disease, but, does she still recognize Michael?

In Act Two, Amber and her brother Gerald spend every Summer at their beach hut in Southwold, Suffolk. Amber is unfulfilled and now almost happy to play the ‘delicate spinster’ along side her doting but rather dull and obsessive brother. However, one day, Bob, from Nottingham, arrives on the beach, along with his metal detector and life for Amber is never quite the same again!!!

All tickets cost £5 and are available from the Post Office, pubs and members of the Village Hall committee.
