Elite Homes: offering the Platinum Package in luxury retirement living. Old friends Roddy Meakin and Amanda Goose are enjoying their twilight years on their own terms - outrageous pranks and clandestine gins in the garden, adult magazines at the dinner table and a healthy disregard for the other residents. All is idyllic – until, that is, new management is brought in to restore order…

Dusty Hughes’ new comedy looks at the cost of growing old and the joys of ageing disgracefully.

Dusty returns to Hampstead following Bad Language in 1983. His subsequent plays have been seen at the National Theatre, the RSC, the Royal Court, the Donmar and in the West End as well as in Europe and America. He writes extensively for television, including some of the BBC’s and ITV’s most popular dramas such as Lewis, Silent Witness, The Musketeers and Dalziel and Pascoe.

Sara Kestelman stars as Amanda. Sara returns to Hampstead following the critically acclaimed Filthy Business in 2017 and Tony Kushner’s The Intelligent Homosexual’s Guide to Capitalism and Socialism with a Key to the Scriptures in 2016. Her other theatre credits include Copenhagen (National Theatre) King Lear (RSC/Barbican) and A Midsummer Night’s Dream (RSC/New York). Her television and film credits include Lady Jane, Anna Karenina, Rome and In the Flesh.
