23 episodes

Series of short scenes—a radio soap opera without the soap—entertaining and a wee bit provocative, especially if you are a woman of 'a certain age'. Helen is in her mid-70s, adjusting to the reality of her ageing body, determined to claim her status as 'elder', 'crone', 'senior' with dignity, honesty and joy. Her family have other ideas, refusing to accept that she is, quite possibly, old. Written, performed and produced by Aussie-born, Liverpool-based actress, singer-songwriter and performance poet Flloyd Kennedy, with occasional guest performers.

Just what is old?

You can’t help but love the lead character Helen as she tries to dodge the, “ Are you alrights,” from her family and she searches for the true meaning of the word “Old”
Flloyd is a master of timing and voices. Really enjoyable.
