A character-driven comedy-drama in which eight disparate (and desperate) characters, all in the twilight years of their theatre careers, are unexpectedly ‘rescued’ from whatever happens to discarded, elderly actors. The why is what the play is about...... and how at the end they ‘rescue’ themselves. It is set in the present and in the lounge of an old boarding-house somewhere in Ellerslie, yet to be discovered by Auckland property developers; in need of attention but comfortable.

The NZ playwright, Ruth Mayo, now lives in London but is an ex-Mercury actor from the 1970s to early 80s; she knows her territory well.
