NEWS that Bill English is to open a new wing of the Cambridge Retirement Village sparks a revolution among its residents. Though many want to turn on something special, others are less enthused and plan to stage a protest. Soon, new fractures appear along old fault lines, transforming the swanky facility into a hotbed of insurrection, intrigue and infidelity. The shenanigans and skulduggery continue right up to the last minute. With the Minister's car only moments away, a vehicle suddenly blocks the driveway. What's worse, it's a hearse!

After the triumphant success of You Can Always Hand Them Back, New Zealand's most popular playwright is back with a (cardio) arresting comedy packed with hypertensive hilarity. For Roger Hall, there's nothing retiring about retirement and ageing is not merely a tale of bridge and bedpans. Last Legs is a lethally funny black comedy about sex, death and politics with an irresistible appeal to the old and bold of heart.

The Ones That Got Away

Sunday 24 September 2:30pm | ASB Cube, ASB Waterfront Theatre | $15 per person

Over his career, Roger Hall has written more than 35 plays plus 70 TV sitcom episodes. Most of his plays and musicals have been successful, but some have failed - such are the vagaries of getting a play on. Naturally these are the ones you don't know about.

The one that had a big British star in, but failed to transfer to the West End; the one that was going to be his big break-through in the USA, but wasn't; two that he was in love with, but audiences didn't reciprocate; and a recent play that got off to such a bad start on opening night, the season had to be shortened. His talk is frank, honest, and often very funny.
