The curtain is about to come up on a new performance by the Lichfield Players.
The local theatre group bring A Month of Sundays to the Garrick Theatre from 14th to 18th May.
The play by Bob Larbey is a “bittersweet comedy” about growing old that follows Cooper, who has voluntarily gone into a nursing home rather than become a burden on his family.
A spokesperson said: “We deduce his valiant determination to hold on to his remaining dignity and independence through his banter, as he jokes with the other senior residents, flirts with the female staff, and keeps a close check on his own ‘record of physical deteriorations’.
“Cooper drives the emotional development of the play with his acerbic wit and waspish asides, but we also glimpse his vulnerability.”
Tickets are £14. To book call 01543 412121 or visit the Lichfield Garrick website.
