OLD ACTORS NEVER DIE…
THEY SIMPLY LOSE THE PLOT
A Farce in Two Acts by Lynn Brittney
The Mount Home for Retired Theatricals is an unusual place – more like a country house hotel than a home for the elderly. As Juliet Sullivan says “Waited on hand and foot – no meals to prepare -beds made. Heaven!” And the manageress positively encourages residents to carry on working as long as they can.
So when Walter Neville (small part veteran of 212 films) arrives, he is overjoyed to find some of his best friends in residence. All is well until the serial womaniser husband of three of the residents (Mrs Sullivan 1, 2 and 3) goes missing – apparently on the run from Russian gangsters. The ladies decide that “He who pays the bills” must be rescued – but how to go about it?
What follows is a truly daft journey into the world of eccentric luvvies that provides some of the best comic roles for senior actors you are ever likely to come across!
