The play is a series of contrasts. A new life says ‘hello’ as an old life recedes, the past and the present merge, and pathos intertwines with comedy, showing how close the two can be.

To stage a performance, you must announce your performance dates to Maverick Musicals and state whether you are or are not charging for tickets. This will dictate what kind of royalty fee you will be invoiced for.
Copying Fees (for rehearsal materials) and a Performance License must be obtained before your production can take place.

Each year, members of the Rossi/Sullivan family get together for the Christmas break. This year a new life (baby James) joins the family and a much loved member, Enid, slips further into Alzheimer’s.
Despite the seriousness of the topic, it is diluted by a lively and humorous script, as each person reacts to Enid’s situation in a different way whilst trying to maintain the usual Christmas banter and jollity.ADD FREE SAMPLE TITLE TO CART

Eileen Walder –
When I first read the script I was in tears. I had lived through a similar situation with my own mother and so knew I just had to play Edith. Each rehearsal made me realise just what Mum had felt, her love for her family, her frustrations and her inability to accept the past was not the present. Every performance was an emotional, personal challenge but enabled the audience to understand what happened or might happen within their own family. To receive their thanks and share their experiences made it the most rewarding role I have ever played. Eileen Walder, actor.
John McMahon –
This play was a real challenge to direct. I had two very experienced actresses for the roles of Enid and Helen. The rest had either no experience or very little. However they picked it up, developed character and fed off each other. It is a very real play and touched many audience members deeply. John McMahon. Director. Buderim Theatre Company Qld
