In August at the Arts Theatre the secret lives of the over 80s will finally be revealed in an hysterical night of laughter!

Nana Sylvia Charles has lived in her rent-controlled New York apartment for years, much to the chagrin of her landlord Gil Schmidt. For the last few years, she’s managed to hide her boutique of lingerie for “mature” women from everyone but her customers.

But her granddaughter and future law student, Bridget, discovers the side-hustle, and a “frenzy of nonstop action ensues.” Will Bridget be able to handle all the excitement? Will her nana get arrested – or worse – evicted?

“I saw a production of this play over 10 years ago and promptly fell in love with it!”, explains director Barry Hill. “It explores the notion that senior citizens can still enjoy behaving as if they are young adults and enjoy life! It is a joyful celebration of family relationships, friendship, and of course racy underwear for the discerning older adult with just a touch of kink!”

Come to Nana’s Naughty Knickers and see if her underwear can “fire men up for a price that won’t burn a hole in your wallet!”
