Directed by Denise Gough
18th June (matinee) & 20th - 24th June 2017

Really Old Like Forty Five - Dylan, Alice, Cathy and Lyn


Set some time in the near future, there are too many old people, too many young people and not enough in the middle to look after them all. 

Really Old Like Forty Five - Monroe, Mike, Mimi and Amanda

Really Old, Like Forty Five is a comically honest look at aging through the plans of a government department tasked with finding solutions and one multi-generational family, coping with the realities of everyday living.
