The Gingerbread Lady
Written by Neil Simon
Directed by Ian Macdonald
9 – 14 May 2022

The action revolves around Evy Meara, a popular singer who has hit the skids. After a short stay in rehab, her best friend, age-defying Toby, her daughter Polly, and Jimmy Perry, a gay actor, try to help her adjust to sobriety with a jolly birthday party. Enter Lou Tanner, a former lover, who ends up giving her a black eye. The party is a wash out, the “gingerbread lady” falls off the wagon and hits the ropes once again.
