The man­ager­ess en­cour­ages res­i­dents to carry on work­ing as long as they can. So when Wal­ter Neville (small part vet­eran of 212 films) ar­rives, he is over­joyed to find some of his best friends in res­i­dence. All is well un­til the se­rial wom­an­iser hus­band of three of the res­i­dents goes miss­ing – on the run from Rus­sian gang­sters. The ladies de­cide that “he who pays the bills” must be res­cued. What fol­lows is a daft jour­ney where our in­trepid thes­pi­ans ply their craft to save their life­style and Ed­mund’s ba­con. Shows nightly at 7.30pm with a 2pm mati­nee Sun­day.
