Details

When an agony aunt reaches her sixties and seventies she can lie like a trooper, jump off a bridge – or take to the stage.

“Growing Old Disgracefully”, written and performed by Virginia Ironside, is a joyful evening of her personal musings and observations, directed by the ‘Young Ones’ Nigel Planer. She is the writer of numerous humorous books, as well as columns in The Oldie, The Idler and formerly in The Independent, in which her wry and witty observations have gained her a large following of empathetic admirers. She voices the unspoken thoughts that many people share about the dilemmas of aging gracefully, disgracefully, even outrageously.

Virginia Ironside explains that unlimited free drugs, boring for Britain, fun funerals, grandchildren and sex – or, even better, no sex – make life after sixty the best – and funniest - time of your life…
