An Arts Council England Celebrating Age project supported by the Baring
Foundation.

Writer Anna Glynn

A new play inspired by the lives of Winchester’s 90-year-olds

When my bones are stiff and aching,
And my feet won’t climb the stair,
I will only ask one favor:
Don’t bring me no rocking chair.
‘On Aging’, Maya Angelou

In a humorous, revealing and touching piece of interactive verbatim theatre, Flintlock Theatre and Hat Fair present a new play that explores what it’s like to be an older person in contemporary Britain.

Constructed from the words of Winchester’s 90-year-old residents, Four Score Years And Ten invites audiences of all ages to a celebration like no other, where guests are invited to take tea alongside partygoers with nine decades of stories to share.

“Old age is the most unexpected of all things that can happen to a man.”
Leon Trotsky
