A comedy by David Hampshire

Guest Director: Vicki Wood

LAUNCH EVENING – Thursday 2nd November,  6.30pm in the Garden Room

“A wonderful five star play: funny, touching, beautifully realised and full of heart and truth.  It’s The Good Companions meets The Entertainer and it’s as good as Priestley and better than Osborne. Seriously.”  - Gyles Brandreth

“It’s moving and entertaining with great writing and fabulous performances.  It made me laugh and cry and it should be a major hit.  See it.” - Su Pollard
