On a dark and stormy night at the Silver Retirement Home, five elderly women trade stories of their lives. Outside, storm floods are rising - and no rescue team is in sight. Our ladies realise that, in order to survive, they must do what they have done their entire lives – do it themselves!
First performed in 2017, Silver Lining is the most recent play of broadcaster, writer and activist, Sandi Toksvig. Sandi has hosted QI, The News Quiz and The Great British Bake Off and many more and is thrilled Stockport Garrick Theatre is performing her play. Silver Lining depicts five feisty women, by no means as helpless as society seems to think they are, who come together one treacherous night to recreate The Great Escape – senior citizen style!
