This is a wonderful production from this small theater group. The "stage" is a rectangular shape with chairs on each side, on the same level, so you really feel like you are part of the play. We are looking forward to Artattack's next production.

by Iain Heggie

So much for “grey power” – dare to grow too old or infirm and you will be dumped in a home by a family that will never visit but instead will hang around waiting to get their hands on what is left of your money. This is the case for the wheelchair-bound Andrene – her son Derek abandoned her without saying goodbye. At least she has the lovely Larry, a care worker, to look after her. Larry was once Derek’s gay lover and – surprise – Derek soon turns up with a girlfriend, Kath, in tow. He wants to start a family with her, but Kath is determined to find out more about him before she commits. The stage is set for a bedpan farce that examines dubious morality with the most dubious of jokes.
