An original stage play by Michael Aitkens, based on the popular BAFTA nominated TV Series. 

“If there was any justice, instead of farting about on SAGA cruises we would be doing loads of drugs and bonking ourselves into oblivion!” 

Reminiscent of when the Rolling Stones got their bus passes, the TV characters you know and love are brilliantly re-imagined for today, facing the challenges that come with growing old disgracefully in the era of the silver surfer.

At Bayview Retirement Village, feisty, retired war zone reporter Diana Trent conspires with new and eccentric resident raver Tom Ballard to give the conniving manager Harvey Baines his comeuppance, with unexpectedly heart-warming results. 

A love story.

Cast includes: Nathan Ariss, Nick Bartlett & Sarah Mann
