Comedy: Old Actors Never Die

  • Comedy: Old Actors Never Die

From the people who brought you 'A Vicar of Dibley Christmas', comes the Royal Manor Theatre's latest hilarious comedy entitled: 'Old Actors Never Die; They Simply Lose the Plot!';

A play by Lyn Brittney will be performed from Monday 13th to Saturday 18th November.

Directed by Becky Chance & Lis Green, the play is set in the Mount Home for Retired
Actors, a home for the elderly like no other. Three women who are ex-wives to the same
womanising actor, Edmund Sullivan, reside here, and welcome the arrival of Walter Neville, a small-part veteran of hundreds of films, and an old friend. All is well until Edmund Sullivan arrives on the run from Russian gangsters. The ladies decide that their ex-husband needs to
be saved, which runs into a truly daft journey of farce and great comedy.
