AN HILARIOUS and touching play - which proves that you are as young as you feel - is coming to Buxton next month.

Buxton Opera House is welcoming back Ian Dickens’ theatre company from Thursday September 6 to Saturday September 8 with You’re Only Young Twice by Ron Aldridge.

Every parent knows what ‘that difficult stage’ is like - when the kids are staying out until all hours, playing their music too loud and spending most of the day in bed.

Sue and Richard have all these problems, but not with their children - with Sue’s dad! Brooksie, a recent widower, and ‘the gang’ – three of his old mates - are recapturing their youth and loving every minute. After all, you’re only young twice.

Seeking approval from his late wife throughout, we see Brooksie forging himself a new life whilst nearly getting barred from the over-60s club in the process!

You’re Only Young Twice stars Melvyn Hayes (Bombardier ‘Gloria’ Beaumont in It Ain’t Half Hot Mum), David Lonsdale (David Stockwell in Heartbeat), John D (Flt. Lt. Fairfax in ‘Allo, ‘Allo!), Katy Manning (Jo Grant in Doctor Who) and Michelle Morris (The Knock).

Performances will take place from September 6 to September 8 at 7.30pm, with a Saturday matinee at 2.30pm.
