GRANNY GROTBAG SAYS GOODBYE

LIGHTING DESIGNER

WHITE BEAR THEATRE (AUGUST 2019)

“The Wildcat of Sheffield… Not anymore… Where did she go?” 

 Granny Grotbag, a brash, no nonsense Northern powerhouse, welcomes you into her home and takes you on a trip down memory lane. A story of love, loss, dust, and water infections, a strength that is guaranteed to make you laugh, wince and cry into your cuppa. (Yorkshire tea of course!)  A story confirms that “old age is certainly no place for sissies.” 

The outrageous outings of young Northern lass out on the pull, finding the love of her life, raising her children and, now, facing the prospect of spending the last years of her life completely alone, after the death of her husband.

“This is a powerful and poignant play about growing old and our society’s mistreatment of the elderly. It’s a wake-up call, a raucously funny hour which subtly drip feeds its message to us unseen until the very end of the play”
