All looks rosy in leafy London W4. Peter is about to retire and sell his half of the accountancy business to his partner. They’ll be loaded. Laura has just packed their youngest off to university and the world is their oyster. Will they go on a cruise? Hike in the Himalayas? Take up golf? All that remains is for the documents to be signed. They’re off for a celebratory dinner when Laura drops a bombshell……

Olivier Award winners Griff Rhys Jones and Janie Dee star in this devastatingly funny portrait of a couple whose five minutes of candid conversation launches an outpouring of emotions, home truths, wine, nibbles and anarchy.

Actor, writer, presenter, comedian and two-time Olivier Award winner Griff Rhys Jones returns to Bath for the first time since the Moliere classic comedy, The Miser. He has previously been seen on stage as Fagin in Cameron Mackintosh’s Oliver!, Toad in the National Theatre’s The Wind in the Willows and in Feydeau’s An Absolute Turkey.

Janie Dee is one of the UK’s most versatile actors, the winner of Olivier Awards for Carousel, Comic Potential and Hello Dolly. Her recent credits include the Broadway hit Hand to God, Follies at the National Theatre, and Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike in the Theatre Royal Bath’s 2019 Summer Season. Janie was a regular star of TRB’s renowned Peter Hall Seasons, with memorable performances in Pinter’s Betrayal, Coward’s A Design For Living, Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing and George Bernard Shaw’s The Apple Cart.

FRIDAY 25 FEBRUARY – AN HOUR AND A HALF LATER – Join Janie Dee and her pianist Stevie Higgins for an eclectic evening of songs and stories which Janie has collected during her glittering West End and Broadway career. 9.15pm, following the performance of An Hour and a Half Late. Tickets £15 (plus booking fee)

“Very funny … the conversations and arguments which most of the audience will identify and find hilarious. They’ve been there, said that, and hopefully weathered the storm”  British Theatre Guide
