Mon, 13 March, 2017 — Sat, 18 March, 2017

By Gavin Smith | Directed By Steven McNicoll

GAP YEARS

Cast: Tom Marshall , Nicola Roy and Vari Sylvester.

Geraldine has big plans for her retirement. Free from work. Daughter moved out. Disposable cash to burn. She’s going to fulfil her creative ambitions, travel the world with friend Peter and cram as much ‘fun’ as possible in to the next 20 or so years before her feet start shuffling in to a walk in bath.  Geraldine sees this precious time between retirement and self-reclining chairs as her GAP YEARS and nothing can hold her back.

Nothing that is except her daughter. Louise thinks Mum’s the answer to all her childcare problems and so has other plans for Geraldine’s dream retirement.
