Nietzche’s Nose – Comedy about a dysfunctional family

A play about a seriously dysfunctional couple: Frederick: a slovenly, cantankerous husband, who firmly believes in his own superiority over everyone – including his talented wife Alice who somehow still manages to get the last word in! Frederick and Alice two are visited by his brother, Kurt who has news of their daughter, who was summarily thrown out of the family home some years previously. Kurt is also on a mission to get Frederick to help their ailing father, and has brought God with him as a Christian to use as a guilt trip in this comedy about a dysfunctional family.

When Frederick’s health suddenly gets worse, they all have to find the real source of the problem….

A comedy with abrupt mood swings that makes this a challenging play for actors, but nevertheless, quite enjoyable.

A LOVE – NEVER FORGOTTEN – HUMOROUS  DRAMA FOR MATURE ACTORS

Just an old folks’ home? No. This community is more than that. It houses Rose, Alice, her husband Gordon, Ted and Jill. In this one act dramedy, it is a retirement village for mature and independent
individuals, thank you very much.

Of course it makes sense then that the most, ahem, senior ones have the deepest secrets hidden from those who ought to know them best and know truths that would shock the ones who’ve ‘seen it all’. Enter Ives (literally) whose visits to the home are to view it with the intention of perhaps moving in soon. His latest visit unravels Alice’s panic at a ghost from Christmas past. When Ives and Alice do ultimately face each other, Alice is presented with the face of a ghost alright… one that sweet, unassuming, Rose may know everything about in this humorous drama for mature actors.
