In Really Old, Like Forty Five, according to press notes, "a government research body seeks to deal with the problems of a maturing population, and a family addresses its own. Lyn's memory starts to go, Alice takes a fall and even Robbie has to face the signs of aging. Relations are put to the test across three generations – as are those who enter the increasingly sinister world of state care. The play exposes a society in which compassion vies with pragmatism, and by asking unequivocal questions, comes up with some extraordinary answers."
Lez Brotherston directs the production that features Lucy May Barker, Paul Bazely, Amelia Bullmore, Tanya Franks, Gawn Grainger, Thomas Jordan, Michela Meazza, Judy Parfitt, Paul Ritter and Marcia Warren.
