A MONTH OF SUNDAYS

by Bob Larbey

A month of Sundays

Bare Bones’ 2011 summer production was “A Month of Sundays” by Bob Larby. Better known for television series such as ‘The Good Life’ and ‘Ever Decreasing Circles’, Larby has the knack of bringing wit and good humour to just about any subject and situation.
A Month of Sundays is set in a rest home and revolves around two residents: Cooper, who has voluntarily left his family to avoid the indignity of depending on them, and his friend Aylott, both on the verge of some geriatric embarrassment.
To the painful ritual of family visits and empty condescension the two inmates reply with humour and wit, aware that life can only be endured if treated as a comedy.

"This is a play about heroism. As such, it lifts the spirits and reinforces our humanity. The West End is a warmer and more wonderful place for “A Month of Sundays”. The Daily Mail
