Description

Elderly siblings, Ted and Lizzie, huddle in their Shropshire cottage with nothing but the winter wind for company. As the weather gets colder, their electricity keeps blacking out and they begin to go to desperate and often humorous lengths to keep warm. Windy Old Fossils is a black comedy about age, energy and isolation.

“Tom’s a generous writer.
In Windy Old Fossils he gives the actors lines they can ring every drop of comedy and tragedy from.
He gives the creative team images and suggestions that can be interpreted literally and theatrically as they wish.
And he gives the audience an intriguing and accessible story that delivers what it promises, and much more.”
Elizabeth Freestone, Director
