Just The Ticket by Peter Quilter

From the Publishers:

Susan, an eccentric sixty-year-old, decides to celebrate her birthday by repeating a journey to Australia she made with a group of friends when she was 20

This time, she’s travelling alone — carrying the same hopes and dreams, but with 40 years of extra baggage!

Endlessly chatty, accident-prone and often looking like she’s been dragged through a hedge backwards, Susan is undoubtedly colourful

Her wit, charm, chaos and hint of sadness have given her a unique outlook on life — and make her an unforgettable character

Romance slowly but awkwardly blossoms as she reunites with Bill, the bartender at the hotel, an unexpected turn of events that causes Susan to reflect on life, love, loneliness, friendship and the trials and joys of growing older

This poignant 90-minute journey through Susan’s hilarious life is a unique comedy that can be performed by one, three, four or six women!

One Response to Script – Just The Ticket

  1. We put this on last year, with three different actresses playing Susan. It is a wonderful, memorable play that takes the audience from laughter to tears and back again within a few lines. Strongly recommended.
