A new play inspired by the lives of Winchester’s 90-year-olds

“You wouldn’t believe it, would you, that I’m not one of these chatty people I mean I’m talking to you because you want me to, probably.”

In a humorous, revealing and touching piece of interactive verbatim theatre, Hat Fair and Flintlock Theatre present a new play that explores what it’s like to be an older person in contemporary Britain.

Constructed from the words of 90-year-old Winchester residents, Four Score Years And Ten invites audiences of all ages to a celebration like no other, where guests are invited to take tea alongside partygoers with nine decades of stories to share.

“Old age is the most unexpected of all things that can happen to a man.”
Leon Trotsky
