“Old age is the most unexpected of all things that can happen to a man.”Leon Trotsky
A play inspired by the lives of Winchester’s 90-year-olds.
“You wouldn’t believe it, would you, that I’m not one of these chatty people I mean I’m talking to you because you want me to, probably.”
In a humorous, revealing and touching piece of interactive verbatim theatre, Flintlock Theatre and Hat Fair present a new play that explores what it’s like to be an older person in contemporary Britain.
Constructed from the words of Winchester’s 90-year-old residents, Four Score Years And Ten invites audiences of all ages to a celebration like no other, where guests are invited to take tea alongside partygoers with nine decades of stories to share.
