WAITING FOR GOD Starts First UK Tour Today with Collections for Age UK

Jeffrey Holland stars as Tom Ballard and Nichola McAuliffe as Diana Trent in the premiere stage production of the BAFTA-nominated WAITING FOR GOD which begins a 12 week UK tour this week. They head a cast of nine directed by Tony Award winner David Grindley. WAITING FOR GOD delighted TV audiences across five primetime BBC series in the 1990s and this all-new script is penned by the sitcom's creator Michael Aitkens.

The cast also features Joanna Bending as Sarah Chase, David Benson as Geoffrey Ballard, Peter Cadden as Dennis Sparrow, Samuel Collings as Harvey Baines and Emily Pithon as Jane Edwards as well as Corinna Marlowe and Anna Westlake. WAITING FOR GOD is produced by James Seabright.

All the favourite characters from the original series are reimagined for 2017, facing the challenges that come with growing old disgracefully in the era of the silver surfer. At Bayview Retirement Home, battle-axe extraordinaire Diana Trent conspires with new resident Tom Ballard to give the conniving manager his comeuppance with unexpectedly heart-warming results.

The producers and cast of WAITING FOR GOD will be raising money for Age UK as they travel around the country. Age UK is the country's largest charity dedicated to helping everyone make the most of later life. They believe in a world where everyone can love later life and work every day to achieve this. They help more than 7m people every year, providing companionship, advice and support for older people who need it most.
