The Court Theatre Presents YOU CAN ALWAYS HAND THEM BACK 9/06-10/04

You Can Always Hand Them Back by Roger Hall, New Zealand's most loved playwright returns to The Court Theatre this time with British musical heavyweight Peter Skellern ( You're a Lady , Love is the Sweetest Thing ) to take patrons on a light hearted journey through the joys and horrors of Grandparenthood, with all its painful pleasures.

Show Times: 6:30pm Mon & Thu; 7:30pm Tue, Wed, Fri, Sat; 2:00pm Matinée Saturday 27 September Tickets $56 - $ 22.

Maurice and Cath's kids have left home, the nest is finally empty, a life of gin, golf and overseas holidays awaits . That is until the grandchildren arrive. Can there be a greater joy? But being grandparents also means being free baby - sitters . Then its dirty nappies , driving the kids to school and chasing a slippery tot around the bath . Hall's script is beautiful balanced with Skellern's witty and tuneful songs . You Can Always Hand Them Back is a vintage Hall , with his usual gift of providing instantly recognizable situations which grandparents and parents will find lots to laugh at .
