WAITING FOR GOD

WAITING FOR GOD

A comedy by Michael Aitkens

Directed by David Grindley

Starring Roy Hudd and Nichola McAuliffe

Roy Hudd (The News Huddlines, Broadchurch) and Nichola McAuliffe (Surgical Spirit, Victoria) star in this premiere stage production of the BAFTA Best Comedy Series nominated Waiting For God, which delighted TV audiences across several BBC series 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, Sideways). The cast of nine is led by Hudd and McAuliffe, brilliant performers who have each won best performance accolades in the prestigious Olivier Awards.

All the favourite characters from the original series are reimagined for 2017, facing 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.

"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." BFI

"Roy Hudd is a hoot... kept the audience rapt." Daily Telegraph

"Nichola McAuliffe's timing and delivery are impeccable." The Guardian
