Rotten Park Road presents

A Story for when we are Granddads

by Patrick McConnell

Wed 23rd - Fri 25th April 2008 at 7.30pm in the Ron Barber Studio Theatre
Matinee: 25th at 2.30

An award-winning, darkly comic thriller, starring writer Patrick McConnell, Dean Leon Finlan and David Bowen.  Directed by Matt Rozier.

Join the terminally unemployed Mike and Dave in their adventure to find the truth;  Who is Mr. Martin? Why have they got a briefcase full of cash? And how long can they get away with feigning mental illness to falsely claim incapacity benefit? The play takes us from lounge to pub to police station before the shocking truth is revealed. Touring since 2005, ‘Granddads’ has gained critical acclaim with its slippery twists and turns. This is the must-see event of the year!

‘Rotten Park Road’ are a Midlands based emerging new writing theatre company, with a reputation for performing theatre with and innovative and spirited style.
