About the play:
In the middle of a mid-life crisis and a stagnant marriage, where’s the best place to go?


Well according to playwrite John Godber it would be the Scardale Hall Health Farm, and that’s just where Don and Shirley Weston have come to relax, pamper themselves and just possibly rescue their ailing marriage.


Known for his innovative work in Theatre (“Bouncers”, “Shakers” et al), John Godber is one of the most widely performed writers in the English language. Elmwood Players are excited to bring this production to the Christchurch stage this October.
