    Beneath The Blue Rinse

    By Tom Glover
    Designed by Nomi Everall
    Cast includes Kevin Tomlinson (Mark in Spiral, Park90)

    Quentin Tarantino meets Last of the Summer Wine in this wickedly funny, high octane comedy about growing old passionately and disgracefully.

    When unscrupulous, over-confident salesman Simon Sudgebury comes knocking on the door of the seemingly timid Flora Parkin, hoping to scare her into buying an expensive alarm system, little does he realise what he is about to let himself in for. Feisty, charismatic 75 year old Flora and her gentle 72 year old 'toy boy' lover George are not what they first appear!

    Produced by comedy-based theatre company KEPOW! Beneath The Blue Rinse explodes stereotypes associated with 'senior citizens' and questions how society views and treats the elderly.

    KEPOW! Theatre have been producing high quality comedy theatre shows for over 20 years, with many of their shows receiving 5 star reviews at the Edinburgh Festival, before going on to tour the UK and abroad (Seven Ages, On the Edge! and Crazy Little Thing Called Love!)

    Tom Glover was selected as one of three winners of the 2018 BAFTA/Rocliffe New Writing Showcase Competition. Preceding this, he has been a winner and runner up in two BBC writing competitions, with a number of projects optioned and one commissioned.

    "Hilarious, thought-provoking and entertaining... this is not only a great piece of theatre, but also a wake up call" ★★★★★ The Ocelot
