‘Taking Off’
A Play by Roger Hall

Directed by Steve Grounds

The master of Kiwi comedy, does it again.

The story centres around four women who set out – quite a lot later in life than most - on their ‘OE’ to Europe.

For them, it’s now or never !

Frankie, a teacher, wins Lotto, ditches her husband and is off to re-create herself. Noeline, a nurse who spent years looking after an ill husband, needs R & R. Ruth, a farmer’s wife, leaves her husband after she discovers his affair with a share-milker. Jean sets off with her redundancy payment after the death of her closest friend.
Poignant, touching and very funny, the travel adventures of these four will resonate for anyone who has ever “done” Britain.

Roger Halls dialogue sparkles with its usual brio and wit.
