Season: 2009-2010
25th September – 3rd October 2009 at 8pm Good Things
By  Liz Lochhead
Directed by Tony Mason

Susan, suddenly single and with the dreaded 5-0 glaring her in the face, has an Old Dad in his second childhood, a daughter in the throes of aggravated adolescence and an ex who, unfortunatley, still has the power to wound. Set in the charity shop where Susan is a volunteer, Good Things is a poignant, hilarious play with a lot to say about finding love later in life.

The Guardian’s Mark Fisher wrote: “Good Things makes no pretence at being a heavyweight play; it doesn’t scale the emotional heights even of Perfect Days, Lochhead’s last midlife crisis comedy, but it delivers the laughs, the pathos, the urban poetry and the happy ending with such feelgood assurance that you can only be entertained.”
