The NZ amateur production premier of this delightful comedy by Irish playwright Bernard Farrell opens on Wednesday 2 April at the Kapiti Playhouse. Performances run from Wednesday to Saturday until 12 April 2014.

This is a two-act comedy set in the kitchen of Alice’s home. In Act One we celebrate Alice’s seventieth birthday and in Act Two we celebrate her seventy-first. See what changes, if any, a year can make! Due to a tragic accident, Alice was widowed at an early age and left to raise a son, Barry, and a daughter Barbara, on her own. Barbara now lives in San Francisco with her husband Cormac and Barry lives in England with his new girlfriend, Sandy, while Alice lives alone except for the company of Jimmy Heffernan, her neighbour for many years. Her children return each year to “celebrate” her birthday and present Alice with plans to place her in an “old peoples” home. However, this is Alice’s greatest nightmare and they have not counted on her determination not to go through with their scheme. Bernard Farrell has given us an excellent play with lots of laughs and one that all the Alices of this world can certainly relate to.

Tickets cost $20 for Adults, $17 for Seniors/Children, with a $2 discount for groups of eight or more. Bookings at the Ticket Direct Information Desk at Coastlands Mall (04) 902 9885.
