Inspector Sands: The Lounge
THEATRE97 years go by in a flash. An afternoon lasts an eternity.
In a care home lounge somewhere off the A1, 97 year old Marsha Hewitt begins the last day of her life. But she cannot go quietly. As the radiators burn and Jeremy Kyle blares, rivalries, relatives and murderous impulses jostle for space on the Axminster carpet. By teatime, a riot is brewing.
The award-winning Inspector Sands (A High Street Odyssey, If That's All There Is, Hysteria) shine a spotlight on how we cope, or fail to cope, with growing older.
