Silver Lining

Silver Lining


An English Touring Theatre and Rose Theatre Kingston world première production

On one dark and stormy night in the upper day room of the Silver Retirement Home, 5 elderly ladies are trading stories of their remarkable lives. With the storm floods rising and no rescue team in sight, the ladies are faced with the sudden realisation that in order to survive they are going to have to do what they have done for their entire lives – do it themselves!

Silver Lining is the hilarious new comedy by Sandi Toksvig. It tells the tale of 5 extraordinary yet forgotten women, who come together one treacherous night to recreate The Great Escape – senior citizen style!


This production contains strong language and sexual references. An age guidance of 12+ is recommended.
