Waiting For God by Michael Aitkens

What a better way for our group to re-start live theatre than by offering this very funny comedy written by Michael Aitkens and directed by Jim Newcomb.

This is the theatre adaptation of the BBC sit-com, broadcast in the early 1990’s, showing the exploits of two spirited residents of a retirement home, Diana Trent and Tom Ballard, who spend their time running rings around the home’s oppressive management team.  It starred Stephanie Cole and Graham Crowden and ran for 5 series.

Many fraught but very funny situations arise throughout with plenty of awkwards moments, including a birth, a death, an inappropriate drive in a Porsche, all culminating in a double wedding and a funeral booked at the same time - with Diana and Tom at the centre of everything.

If you would like to laugh along with us, please join us for a performance night which runs from 9th September to 11th September at Monmouth Savoy Theatre.
