Laugh and cry with God's Waiting Room

FULL of saucy one-liners and light-hearted moments, Dorothy Hillis's latest play God's Waiting Room explores an eclectic range of residents at the fictitious Grafton Retirement Village.

Dorothy give the audience a few familiar characters the audience can relate to and a few tricky points to ponder.

Ken is approaching his 100th birthday and preparations are afoot for a huge party. He's looking forward to his letter from the Queen and being the centre of attention.

Lucy and Jane are tacking the unenviable and all-too-familiar task of putting their beloved mum in a home.

Margaret, who is recently widowed, has come to the retirement village to be the new manager. For Grace, the village means she can make the most of what she loves best ... the company of others.

Doug and Connie are a devoted couple, struggling to deal with Connie's terminal illness. Absolutely terrified at the thought of having to cope on his own, Doug faces a confronting decision.

Rod, Nathan and James find they actually have quite a lot in common.

They're able to help each other to deal with their chequered histories and, as good mates, work toward a happier future.
