Parents are people too

Nancy and Bill are calling it quits. After 50 years of ‘married bliss’, Nancy wants to take a last chance at living her best life. And Bill? Well, Bill’s OK with it. The couple’s adult children, Ben and Brian, are definitely not OK with it. Who said elderly parents have a right to branch out and try new things?

Stage legends John Bell and Linda Cropper (returning to the STC stage for the first time in 11 years) lead an exceptional cast including Johnny Nasser, James Majoos, Zindzi Okenyo (The Golden Age) and Guy Simon (Playing Beatie Bow) in a story that shows us that working out what you really want is a lifelong process.

This brand new family comedy straight from pre-lockdown Broadway takes a brilliantly comedic – and ultimately moving – look at romance and intergenerational divides in the era of self-expression, alternative family models and… sexting.

In the hands of Resident Director Jessica Arthur (WonnangattaBanging Denmark), Bess Wohl’s laugh-out-loud comedy will ponder the joys and frustrations of family, marriage, intimacy and risking it all in the search of genuine happiness.
