The Shock of the Old

Thu 10th Oct 7:30 pm 1hr30 plus interval £12.50 Café Bar Music

In this hilarious and spirit-lifting new show, songwriter and author Terence Blacker celebrates one of the great challenges of life – the art of ageing with style.

With songs described by Gyles Brandreth as “witty, wistful, wonderful”, plus anecdotes and a dash of wisdom, he shows how getting old can be the best, most liberating – and funniest – part of your life.

“A cracking show.”
“Musically wonderful. Just a fantastic evening.”
“He speaks the truth. And he’s terribly funny. And he brings a tear to your eye.”

Audiences love this perceptive and timely show. The Shock of the Old may not reveal the great secret of the coming of age, but Terence Blacker shares a world of fun, warmth and wisdom looking for it.
