Its latest production of Last Legs has been a long time coming to the stage, with lots of changes and challenges along the way
The play, written by Roger Hall and directed by Julie Lankshear, is described as ‘a (cardio) arresting comedy’.
There’s nothing retiring about a retirement village and aging is not merely about bridge and bedpans. This is a lethally funny black comedy about sex, death and politics with an irresistible appeal to the bold of heart.
“Roger’s plays, with their very recognisable characters, have been a favourite of mine to direct for many years,” says Julie.
“Working with the actors on stage to bring the characters to life, we realise just how complex people really are. The cast and crew have all worked together to bring the author’s humour and characters to life on the stage.”
