This hilarious, must-see adult comedy by Sandi Toksvig is set on one dark and stormy night in the upper day room of the Silver Retirement Home. Five elderly women are trading stories of their remarkable (or sometimes unremarkable) lives when storm floods rise with no rescue team in sight. The ladies are faced with the sudden realisation that in order to survive they are going to have to do what they have done for their entire lives – do it themselves! It’s The Great Escape – senior-citizen style. This Sandi Toksvig comic masterpiece is packed with plenty of her usual warm wit and charm…. as well as the odd sex toy!! Co-Directed by Adela Forestier-Walker and Zeya Thomas With one very experienced ALPs director (Adela) whose experience goes back long enough to make her well aware of the perils of being a very senior citizen, coupled with Zeya’s equally impressive experience of professional theatre combined with more youthful energy and enthusiasm, the actors and creatives of this production are in good hands – and our audiences can be sure of seeing a hilarious version of Sandi Toksvig’s play.
