'This is unapologetically accessible and entertaining theatre...' '...laugh out loud with recognition' - The Age
'Incisive… plenty of humour thanks to the witty one liners'… - The Jewish News
'Identification Theatre For Retirees'… - The Herald Sun
A comedy drama exploring the dilemma of 'retirement'
and the impact it has on a relationship.
What happens when the suit no longer fits; when the lifestyle you've so carefully sculpted for yourself comes to an end? Home for Lunch is the story of one man's coming of age – the end of an era, the search for new meaning.
With a complete lack of personal insight Steven finds himself home for lunch – retired, lost and afraid. Both Steven and his wife, Heather, are thrown by this new arrangement. Throughout their marriage they have played out carefully constructed roles, now that has all changed. Using pathos, comedy and drama, Home for Lunch is a look at one man's personal journey as he learns to let go and move on.
