The Old People Are Revolting

The Old People Are Revolting! is a mad cap comedy about seniors seeking revenge. The residents of the Sunshine Retirement Village have had enough: they’re revolting!
Once the ‘movers and shakers’ of their community, the residents of Sunshine Village are now largely ignored, and relegated to the sidelines of life. But the world is about to find out more about a car salesman, seamstress, hairdresser, farmer and a supposed High Court Judge.
When the city council decides to end its rates rebate for the elderly, the pen pushers in town hall have no idea what anarchy they are about to unleash. Using the United Nations charter on the rights of self-determination, the residents decide to create their own independent kingdom and teach the wider community a lesson.
Determined to start things off with a bang, they recruit retired farmer Doug to build a home-made bomb so they can spectacularly blow up a council-owned jacaranda tree. Once the media gets involved in the shape of aspiring young newscaster Ashley Hardwick, the story goes viral on the Internet and the revolution becomes unstoppable.
Bursting with eccentric characters and crazy shenanigans the play is great fun to stage and a huge audience pleaser.
