Growing old is inevitable. Growing up is optional


It's the unexpected things that rekindle the unique bond between brother and sister. An ageing parent is one. Alzheimer's is another.

But life's too short. There are new places to go and new people to meet. And new discoveries to be made - not least between brother and sister and their family experiences past present and future.

Share Jed and Rosie's revelations in Tim Elgood's funny and poignant play about growing up, growing old and a lifetime of rediscovery.

Presented in association with Derby Live.

Target audience age: 14+ years
Running time: 90 mins approx
Interval length: 20 mins
