"Getting On" by Alan Bennett @ Riverside Arts Centre | Sunbury-on-Thames | England | United Kingdom

Described as “a small jewel of bewilderment and regret” by the London Sunday Times, the play is set in the 1970s and focuses on George and Polly Oliver.  He is a British Labour MP who feels tethered in a time of change.  He casts a world-weary eye over his marriage (his second) to Polly, social position (unsatisfactory) and life in general.  It’s brimful of wry comedy and bittersweet moments, like Polly’s summing-up of her husband: “He’s a socialist but he doesn’t like people”.

Tickets are available via our box office or on the door.
