Barry and Gen may have retired, but these spirited seniors aren’t slowing down.
There’s overseas travel to plan, family feuds to settle, the inevitable health problems, and a friend to bury. As Barry and Gen put the fun into funerals and discover new complications in conjugal relations, Winding Up provides a hilarious testament to the lighter side of the golden years.
With over 40 plays under his belt, from Glide Time and Middle-Age Spread to Four Flat Whites in Italy, freshly-knighted theatre legend Sir Roger Hall is thoroughly entitled to rest on his laurels.
Thankfully, he didn’t get the memo: Winding Up showcases Hall in classic form, once again demonstrating his inimitable wit and knowing insight, while comic legends Alison Quigan and Mark Hadlow command the stage. Escape the heat and book for the summer’s biggest premiere now!
Running Time: Approx 120 minutes
