The Play moves from present to past as Adrian takes the audience back to scenes in 2007 when he and his wife Alison, both librarians, retired, sold their family home and downsized to a retirement village. Next on their bucket list was a carefully planned holiday to Italy – Venice, Rome and a week in Tuscany! But their best friends pulled out, and new neighbours Harry, a wealthy plumber, and his wife Judy, agreed to step into the breach …
No two couples could have been so mis-matched, but though the holiday was a series of disasters – some old wounds were healed and a new friendship consolidated.
Adrian: 60+ University librarian, recently retired. Uptight and under the thumb of …
Alison: 60+ his wife, also a librarian. Organised, in control … and very uptight.
Harry: 60+ Retired businessman. Owns a plumbing supplies company. Hearty, bluff, very right wing.
