Menopause, minors and high speed motors
A darkly comic play by Alfred Buttigieg which looks at a Maltese couple as they strive for one last sip of the summer wine opens this month.

Kate seems happier. A typical middle-class working mother, she seems level-headed and in control. It is, however, a mere front.
Malcolm Galea directs, Pierre Stafrace plays Henry and Angele Galea is Kate.
