Too Young to Stay in, Too Old to Go Out!
Sun 12th Sep
Outdoor performance in the Bothy Garden.
In his one man show, Nigel Osner casts a quizzical eye over life as we get older, examining dating, love, work, holidays - even the gym!
There’s a lot of humour, but with a bitter sweet edge. Making simple costume changes, Nigel performs original songs and stories by male and female characters, including Gerald who is having a taxing night out in central London; a rich designer who falls for his hunky gardener; the woman maddened by her companion on a river cruise; and a fading star on an endless tour.
