The theatre is very small, best described as "experimental" I would say, and this production was expertly produced and directed, great acting by all, and the script was unique - dealing with an aging mother in a nursing home. I loved it!

Description

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.
