Theatre: Rosehill Players - One Day I'll Fly Away

Rosehill Players present One Day I'll Fly Away, a comedy drama by playwright Janet Shaw.

One young woman, one old lady. Their lives were poles apart, but fate took a hand and threw them together.The only problem was they were more alike than anyone could begin to imagine. Both had battled adversities beyond comprehension.

Set in a respite home, this funny and poignant story follows the ups and downs of the two women - Nora and Kylie - as mutual dislike and mistrust turns into an unusual and heartwarming friendship.

Directed by Roger Wilson, the play is full of humour, pathos and sentimentality, dealing sympathetically with contemporary issues such as dementia, alcohol and drug addiction, loneliness and old age.

The Players, who are returning to the Rosehill stage after a break of three years, say the wonderful story is likely to leave the audience laughing and crying, probably at the same time.

It also features missing false teeth, a cleaner who is addicted to gossip and two members of staff in denial of their feelings for each other!

Discounted tickets are available to groups from local residential/respite homes. Contact the box office on 01946 692422 for full details.
