Last Legs

Each year we see more and more retirement villages being built in New Zealand, and quite pertinently in Auckland; indeed Rymans are building a complex just a couple of kilometres from the Rose Centre.

There is an ever-increasing number of retirees but what actually happens in a retirement village? Are the residents indeed on their 'last legs' or is there life in them yet? With wonderful repartee, Roger Hall explores the relationships, the activities, the inner reflections and the humorous moments that make up the lives of six residents at the fictitious but very real Cambridge Retirement Village. The play had a sell-out world premiere at Circa Theatre in 2016, and a successful season at Auckland's Waterfront Theatre in September 2017.

Last Legs is a very funny black comedy about sex, death and politics (set in the era of Bill English) and will appeal to all ages, not just those approaching retirement and wondering with trepidation or excitement what lies ahead!
