From childhood to old age, Rose and Robin have had a wonderful life together – and they want to share it with YOU!
From sports to stargazing, they’ve enjoyed so much together. And most of all, they loved to dance.
They’ve had their bumps in the road, of course, and now Robin can’t remember where they keep the clothes pegs. But that’s all fine, at the end of the day!
Commissioned by Queen’s Hall Arts, presented by Mad Alice Theatre Company and directed by Geof Keys, Rose and Robin is a playful and serious, sad and happy show that celebrates life in all its richness; a story of love and loss, for old and young... (especially if you are over seven and have ever lost a sock. Or someone you love.)
So, join Rose and Robin through their days of dances and dreams, music and memories. What could possibly go wrong? Well, quite a bit... but don’t worry. You’ll be helping them with some of the moves!
A perfect play for children to enjoy with their grandparents and parents - they were kids once as well!
Suitable for YOUNG and OLD ages 7yrs to 70yrs!!
Running time: 50 mins approx.
