staged 15-24th June 2023


This comedy play is set in modern day Northern England.  Think Coronation St ish.  It follows the story of Molly and Dolly, lifelong friends & neighbours.  Dolly has become more confused and forgetful lately.  Her kids are ready to sell up everything and move her into a home.   Molly would do anything for her best friend, in a heartbeat.  But can she do what needs to be done?

Their kids have all grown up together - school, holidays  - and now an unfortunate love triangle has developed.  AND what have Stan & Ernie been potting around with down at the allotment?

Stan Brown - 60’s - 70’s, Molly’s husband, cheerful, long suffering, loves his wife

Dolly Carter - 60’s - 70’s, Molly’s best friend since they were children, they are thick as thieves. She is widowed.
