The light drama Albert Nobbs, by Gordon Steel, will be staged in April and requires actors in the 60 to 70 age bracket.

After retirement Albert finds himself bored and nagged senseless by wife Connie. But his life is turned upside down by her sudden death in a road accident, and he struggles for reason to carry on: that is until Connie returns as a ghost and sets about organising a fulfilling retirement for Albert, including matchmaking with her best friend Rose!
