On one dark and stormy night in the Silver Retirement Home, five elderly ladies are trading stories of their remarkable lives. With the flood waters rising, the ladies are faced with the realisation that help isn’t coming. With no rescue in sight, they are going to have to sort it themselves – luckily, that’s exactly what they’ve been doing their entire lives!

Silver Lining is the hilarious and heartbreaking new comedy by writer, actor, presenter and political activist Sandi Toksvig starring Sheila Reid, Joanna Monro, Amanda Walker, Rachel Davies and Maggie McCarthy. It tells the tale of five extraordinary women who come together one treacherous night to recreate The Great Escape – senior citizen style!

This World Premiere production of Silver Lining is brought to the stage by English Touring Theatre and the Rose Theatre Kingston. ETT’s recent productions at Oxford Playhouse include Arcadia and the award-winning The Herbal Bed.
