This Old Man

OVERVIEW

  • Playwright

    Gerard Lee 

  • Synopsis

    Two middle-aged sisters, Carol and Denise, battle it out over the best care-plan for their ailing and increasingly forgetful dad, the slightly curmudgeonly but loveable rogue Eamonn. Sparks fly, a few tears are shed, but laughter is never far away as Eamonn casts a cold eye over the whole shebang. As the Book of Ancient Grudges is thrown open, everyone seems to think they know what's best for Dad, while Eamonn increasingly feels like a minor character in his own life. And as for piggy-in-the-middle Eamonn, well, all he wants is a bit of bloody peace.
