The Retirement of Tom Stevens
Cast... Denise Black Tim Dantay Elaine Glover Simon Merrells Maurice Roëves BOOK NOW! LAST CHANCE TO SEE IT! The Retirement of Tom Stevens charts the events which surround the retirement party of the fiercely patriarchal Tom and the subsequent Christmas he spends in Southwell, Nottinghamshire with his son Richard, a successful sports journalist now living in London and David, his second child, a manager for a small chain of hotels based in the East Midlands. Across three days, Richard and David and the two women in their lives, Mary, David’s wife and Richard’s new (and much younger) girlfriend Susan become embroiled in a gradual uncovering of the past and a revealing of the truth which binds them all together… William Ivory is perhaps best known for the memorable and acclaimed 'The Sins', 'Night Flight' and the BAFTA nominated Comedy drama 'Common as Muck'.
