A group of larcenous old folks steal furs from various New York stores with the intent of using the proceeds from their resale to buy their retirement hotel and save it from the developers.
This production has a cast of 21, with something like 65 years difference between newcomer Ryan Hynes and the oldest performer.
The play was directed and produced by Kate Sheffield and the undoubted star, as so often over the years, was Val Taylor.
She was ably backed by Nigel Rowe, Chris Sadd, Christine Phasey and Glyn Hill, while Amanda Rowe and Tovah Undrill
worked hard as the link between scenes and Rosamund Pettett gave a delightful performance as the scatty Sadie.
Altogether it was another great night's entertainment. Lesley Pallett
