On one dark and stormy night in the upper day room of the Silver Retirement Home, five elderly ladies are trading stories of their remarkable lives. With the storm floods rising and no rescue team in sight, the ladies are faced with the sudden realisation that in order to survive they are going to have to do what they have done for their entire lives – do it themselves!
Silver Lining is the hilarious new comedy by writer, actor, presenter and political activist Sandi Toksvig. It tells the tale of five extraordinary yet forgotten women, who come together one treacherous night to recreate The Great Escape – senior citizen style!
This world premiere production of Silver Lining is brought to the stage by English Touring Theatre and the Rose Theatre Kington. ETT’s recent work includes Terence Rattigan’s French Without Tears (★★★★ “A hoot of an evening”, The Times) and Evelyn Waugh’s Brideshead Revisited (★★★★ The Daily Mail).
An English Touring Theatre and Rose Theatre Kingston co-production.
