Mark Silver Sunday at MAC with this hilarious and spirit-lifting new show by songwriter and author Terence Blacker, celebrating one of the great challenges of life – the art of ageing with style. With songs described by Gyles Brandreth as “witty, wistful, wonderful”, plus anecdotes and a dash of wisdom, he shows how getting old can be the best, most liberating – and funniest – part of your life.
Written and performed by Terence Blacker with directorial help from Dillie Keane.
Audiences love this perceptive and timely show:
“Musically wonderful. Just a fantastic evening.”
“A cracking show.”
The Shock of the Old may not reveal the great secret of the coming of age, but Terence Blacker shares a world of fun, warmth and wisdom looking for it.
“We need cheering up right now and this singer-songwriter… is just the ticket.”
“Terence Blacker is a one-off… A hugely popular performer in folk clubs, his songs range from the tender to the satirical, and are always written with wit.”
