Harold and Maude is an idiosyncratic fable told though the eyes of the most unlikely pairing: a compulsive, self-destructive young man who attends funerals for entertainment and a devil-may-care, septuagenarian bohemian.

Through Colin Higgins' tale, we experience a way of seeing the world that looks directly into darkness, stresses our need for humour, the freedom to create, and kindness, while concluding that cynicism and despair are dead ends. Equal parts dark comedy and romantic innocence, Harold and Maude dissolves the line between darkness and light along with ones that separate people by class, gender and age.

It will be directed by Thom Southerland, and star Sheila Hancock.
