Project Description

Grey Nomads VS The World is a two-act comedy that takes a light-hearted look at taking the road most travelled, touching on issues of isolation, chronic illness and being devalued by society. Performed by seniors in our community, it’s ultimately a celebration of how life can be rediscovered, not only on the open road but at the pit-stops and caravan parks along the way.

Rob’s hosting a karaoke competition at the campgrounds at their latest stop on their Grey Nomad travels. Completely unaware that his wife is grossly unhappy with this, he continues to charm fellow campers being the life of the party. His wife Maude copes by drinking and hoping for new neighbours who she can talk to. Single ladies and new travellers Brenda and Evie arrive and are not what Maude is hoping for. The four slowly get to know each other and settle into a harmony until Christian, a single younger man turns up and ruffles each of the women’s feathers. Will either Evie or Brenda catch the younger man alone for some campsite seduction? Will Rob notice his wife’s wandering eye in time to salvage his tenuous marriage?

Audience members will be thoroughly entertained and involved in the show as the participants of the karaoke competition, singing along to the music of the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s. This show is a light-hearted romp that will delight anyone who has ever taken the road less travelled.
