A Month of Sundays

Event image

by Bob Larbey

A comedy about the difficulties inherent in growing old.

1985 Winner of the Evening Standard award for Best New Comedy.

Cooper, who has gone into a nursing home rather than become a burden on his family, flirts valiantly with the female staff, banters with the other old folks and keeps a close check on his "record of physical deteriorations”! To the painful ritual of Sunday family visits and empty condescension, Cooper and his friend Aylott reply with humour and wit, aware that life can only be endured if treated as a comedy.

A Month of Sundays is Bob Larbey's first stage play, although he is well known for writing many television series such as The Good Life, Please Sir, Get Some In and Ever Decreasing Circles.
