  • Beaumaris Theatre Inc. 82 Wells Road Beaumaris, VIC, 3193 Australia (map)

Director: Barbara Crawford
Playwright: Alistair Faulkner
Performance Season: 17 August - 1 September

Rose is a charming and dignified old maiden lady, who, after many years of being on her own, is living out her twilight years in a country nursing home which has strong links to her younger days.

As Rose's health declines, past and present in her mind begin to melt into one. She recalls vivid memories of the Great War and we learn something of her family life, her time as an ambulance driver, her love for a young Flying Corps pilot and the heroic exploits of her Flying Corps ‘Ace’ brother, through several flash-back scenes.

The quiet atmosphere of the nursing home is brightened by the humorous flirtations of a young nurse and her boyfriend and the flash-backs highlight the very different attitudes to life and romance which separate the two generations of young people.
