‘A pair of delicately observed, funny and utterly engrossing new plays … ‘
When Love Grows Old
Two plays by Giles Cole
First, the ageing Duke and Duchess of Windsor while away the time in their Paris flat keeping up appearances and awaiting a visit from the Queen. He’s the naughty boy capable of the nastiness born from frustration and resentment, she’s the exasperated, ever loyal companion. Two people bound – or trapped? – together in a waspish, bickering study of life and love.
Next, two old mates are having a convivial pint as the conversation meanders around comfy inconsequentials – then starts to head in a strange, unsettling direction as betrayals and secrets unfold.
A pair of delicately observed, funny and utterly engrossing new plays on the theme of love and the passing of time performed to perfection by players of distinction.
And just admire the terrific stage management – one of the best set of scene changes you could hope to find on the Fringe.
