A Bit Of A Do: The Rest of Our Lives

Hopefully hopeful, The Rest of Our Lives is a joyful dose of dance, theatre, circus and games. A cabaret of life and near death. Two middle-aged lives in an eclectic, spontaneous, predictable and random decline.

 

Jo is an old dancer, George an old clown. International artists with 100 years of life experience between them, armed with a soundtrack of floor-fillers, a book of raffle tickets and a sprinkling of eco-friendly optimism. Joyful, celebratory and hilarious.

The struggle is real.
It’s the beginning of the end.
But we’re still here.

whatever your age, it will make you very happy indeed” – Lyn Gardner, Stagedoor
