There's life in the old dogs yet! Theatre.

THIS year's play by Slaithwaite Stage Company is the 12th production since the group was formed in 2002.

Old Dogs is a comedy in two acts by Steve Raw.

Slaithwaite chairman Andrew Johnson first saw the play several years ago and felt it was a suitable project for his theatre group - as the age profile of the members matches those of the characters.

The play contains gentle comedy, dramatic action and pure theatrical farce.

All the action takes place at Crimble View, a residential care home for older men and follows the adventures of Ron, Sid and Eric, when they are left to their own devices.

They soon discover a new zest for life, doing things they never thought they'd do again.

The cast includes many well-known faces and names from the Huddersfield stage, most of whom are Slaithwaite regulars, with the addition of one or two actors who are new to the team.

Shaun O'Riordon is the director Old Dogs runs from Tuesday November 4 until Friday at Slaithwaite Civic Hall, each performance begins at 7.30pm.

Tickets are pounds 5.50 for adults and pounds 3.50 for concessions. Student tickets are pounds 3.50 with an NUS card.
