Waiting for God
by Michael Aitkins
Directors: Doug Moses and Sheryl Roche
Season 30 April to 16 May 2020
Auditions are on Monday 3 February 2020
Unhappily thrown together in a place they don’t want to be, two-spirited residents of Bayview Retirement Village, where stepping out of line is strictly frowned upon, form an alliance and begin to give the home’s oppressive management team a run for their money. Each of them has decided that growing old disgracefully is the name of the game.
Cynical, cantankerous, unmarried, retired photojournalist Diana constantly complains about everything and has no time for anyone in this “God’s Waiting Room” except the jovial, optimistic ex-accountant Tom. Between them, they systematically and gleefully set out running rings around the jumped-up management team. Their own family members, Diana’s niece and Tom’s son don’t escape the mayhem either.
A hilarious stage adaption of the BBC comedy series of the same name which will resonate with all who have faced the prospect of themselves or a family member making the lifestyle change to living in a retirement facility.
