Olivier Award-winning Nichola McAuliffe (Lady in the Van) and Jeffrey Holland (Hi-de-Hi!) star in this premiere stage production of the BAFTA-nominated Waiting For God.

Having delighted BBC audiences in the 1990s, this all-new script is penned by the sitcom’s creator Michael Aitkens, and directed by Tony Award-winner David Grindley (Journey’s End).

Reimagined for 2017, all your favourite characters are back as they face the challenges that come with growing old disgracefully in the era of the silver surfer. At Bayview Retirement Home, battle-axe extraordinaire Diana Trent conspires with new resident Tom Ballard to give the conniving manager his comeuppance through a hilarious conspiracy with unexpectedly heart-warming results.

Duration: 1 hour 55mins with interval

Waiting for God proved less a bittersweet elegy of old age decline than an affirmation of the adage that while there’s life, there’s hope.
