A TOUCHING tale of Five Blue Haired Ladies Sitting on a Green Park Bench is the Lytton Players' spring drama production for 2007.

Running at the Lytton Theatre in Vardon Road, Stevenage, from April 25 to April 28, this gentle play will touch both men and women.

Anna, Eva, Rose, Gladys and La La had only two things in common when they met seven months ago - a park bench and a life well-lived.

Through fond and sometimes painful memories, keen observations and a good belly laugh now and again, these gals are truly on the cusp of 80, going on 18.

Bound by each others strengths, wisdom and witticisms, each one unwittingly prepares for the day they leave the bench for the last time.

As the journey unfolds, it's their bonds that ensure - at least for these fearless five - that the grim reaper is not so grim after all.
