No grandparent will want to miss it, and no would-be grandparent should.

New Zealand’s most successful and best-loved playwright collaborates for the first time with distinguished British musician and song-writer, Peter Skellern (“You’re a Lady”, “Love is the Sweetest Thing”).

Maurice and Cath’s kids have left home, the nest is empty, they’re enjoying retirement and being by themselves. However, grandchildren arrive, plunging Maurice and Cath into a new life that they find delightful, inspirational and exhausting.

As the saying goes: “You love to see them come; and you love to see them go.”

This vintage Hall, with his usual gift of providing instantly recognisable situations with a lot of laughs and just a few tears. Skellern’s songs are witty, poignant and hilarious, concluding with an anthem that the audience will joyfully embrace.

“See it or miss something special” – Manawatu Standard

"If I’d known how wonderful it would be to have grandchildren, I’d have had them first” – Lois Wyse
