Beloved acting icons Annie Whittle and Roy Billing return to the stage as Nancy and Bill in the New Zealand premiere of Bess Wohl’s Tony-nominated uproarious comedy, Grand Horizons.
Nancy and Bill are 50 years into the picture-perfect marriage. Now, as they settle into the beige walls of their new ‘lifestyle village’, Nancy announces she wants out. And if her husband Bill is shocked, he doesn’t show it.
For their two grown-up sons, it’s a devastating betrayal. Their long-held beliefs about love, family and security are shaken, sending them back to foot-stomping, tantrum-throwing toddler hood.
Crisply observed and gloriously funny, directed by Jennifer Ward-Lealand, this Broadway hit will kick off our 2022 programme in sparkling style.
Grand Horizons is a heart-warming and cathartic unravelling of a family unit, which is trying to pursue happiness and fulfilment, when each member is at a different stage of life.
