The wickedly funny story of four Kiwi Shirley Valentines.
Roger Hall's wickedly funny comedy trails four intrepid middle-aged kiwi women as they set off on their big 'OE' to Europe. For these women it's now or never!
Frankie, a teacher, wins Lotto and is off to 'reinvent' herself; Noeline, a nurse, treats herself to a trip after years spent caring for her terminally ill husband; Jean, a corporate librarian, sets off with her redundancy payout and Ruth, a farmer's wife, ups and leaves her husband after she discovers he's having an affair with Sharon, the share-milker's wife!
Poignant, touching and very funny, Taking Off is the perfect theatre experience for those who've done their 'OE', and those that dream about doing it!
