BENEATH THE BLUE RINSE
By Tom Glover
Beneath the Blue Rinse by Tom Glover, an outrageous comedy that exposes how society views the elderly.
When an unscrupulous salesman enters sweet but gullible, Flora Parkin’s house, little does he realise he’s been lured into a trap. Simon starts to learn what it is like to be vulnerable, exploited, and subjected to the care of others…who may not care at all. Think ‘Tarantino meets Last of the Summer Wine’.
Tom Glover trained at Hull and Birmingham Universities. His stage plays include Lights, Camera, Walkies (Gilded Balloon Edinburgh), England Expects (The Curve /Kings Head), Wet Bread (Brighton Fringe/Kings Head), Bin & Gone (Tour). His award-winning short film Textual Relationship played the BFI and international festivals.
Our tour was in June-July 2018 and included Oxford, Abingdon, Eynsham and Everyman Cheltenham. We also performed at the 2018 Oxford OffBeat Festival. Kevin Tomlinson directed the play, with Abigail Hood as Sound Operator and Stephanie Connell as Sound Designer/Light Technician.
