Love at Last

Frank and Rose Saunders have been married for fifty-two years, and are now living in a small retirement complex along with five other residents. On the day a young female care assistant starts working at the apartments, a spate of robberies ensue.

Frank Saunders takes it upon himself to prove that the new girl is the thief. However all is not what it seems. The twist and turns which follow add up to an hilarious evenings entertainment.

"With plot twists and a little bit of romance, this is a fabulous, feel good story … It’s rare to see a script where every individual seems to have an equal opportunity to shine throughout a performance. Each of the characters had a considerable amount of script time …"
West Moors Drama Society Review.
