The St Nicolas Players take to the stage from Wednesday, March 21, with the comedy Old Actors Never Die - They Simply Lose the Plot.

The story is set in The Mount Home for Retired Theatricals, which is more like a country house hotel than a home for the elderly.

All is well until the serial womaniser ex-husband of three of the residents goes missing - apparently on the run from Russian gangsters.

What follows is a truly daft journey into the world of eccentric luvvies providing some of the best comic roles for senior actors that you may be likely to come across.

Matilda Hoyles-Simpson stepped up for the part of ‘Irina’ - a dominant and dynamic character with a Russian accent, after we appealed for an actress to fill the role in January.

The play is on at Spalding’s South Holland Centre from Wednesday, March 21 until Saturday, March 24, (7.30pm each day). Tickets are £12, £10 concessions from the Box Office on 01775 764777.

Sponsors for the show are councillor Angela Newton, Reeves Tyres and Calthrops Solicitors. They would also like to thank Hills Furniture store and MOB Hair Design for support.

There will be a collection for The Butterfly Hospice Trust at the performances for anybody who wishes to donate.
