Sometimes, only the old can save the young

Retired couple, ex-nuclear scientists Hazel and Robin, are living off salad, yoghurt and yoga in an isolated coastal cottage, as the world around them crumbles. But when an old friend arrives, the past collides with the present to dramatically alter their futures.
A powerful, thought-provoking story of entwined relationships that is darkly funny, unremittingly human, and asks important questions about love and loss, life and death, and the responsibility of the older generation towards the younger.
Written by award-winning playwright Lucy Kirkwood and originally performed at The Royal Court to critical acclaim, this gripping and witty play comes to The Questors Theatre for a limited six performances. Due to social distancing there will be reduced seating, so make sure to get your tickets fast.
When you come to our theatre, we ask that you please abide by our COVID safety measures, including mask-wearing and hand santizing.
