So how do you feel about the "maturer generation's" loves, lives and lies?

We all have a past. We all have baggage. Some times that baggage makes us judgmental and sometimes our past can catch us out.

I mean "up". Catch us up.

Answers and solutions may not always be possible. Sometimes we only have questions

Silver Secrets and Lies is a taut, humorous thriller that asks, “Can we shake off the ghosts of our past as we seek new love or could the damage caused by one past or present lover become too much to make redemption possible?”

Shoestring Theatre is made up of members of North Devon and Torridge branches of the University of the Third Age. Its members have various amounts of performance experience and loads of life experience. They bring, to this first-time venture into the Fringe Theatrefest, a propensity to take the serious things in life with plenty of salt and a lot of perspective.
