Too Young to Stay in, Too Old to Go Out!

About Too Young to Stay in, Too Old to Go Out!

In this one man show Nigel Osner takes a quizzical look at the comic and bitter realities of growing older. On the one hand, there are daunting setbacks. On the other, you can learn what's best for yourself, find ways to enjoy life and have unexpected victories. Nigel examines dating, love, work, holidays - even the gym! There's a lot of humour but with a bitter sweet edge.

Making simple costume changes, Nigel illustrates his theme with original songs and stories by male and female characters. These include Gerald who is having a taxing night out with a girlfriend in central London; a rich designer who falls for his hunky gardener; the woman driven mad by her companion on a river cruise down the Danube; and a fading star on an endless tour.

•‘This is a beautiful piece of solo work’ Fringe Review
•‘he manages to bring real life to the characters and the[ir] situation’ London Theatre 1
•‘Excellently performed, clever with plenty of wit and humour’ Musical Theatre Review
