A play with music based on the life and works of AA Milne
By Gyles Brandreth and Julian Slade
Music by Julian Slade and H. Fraser-Simson
Lyrics by AA Milne

Martin Milnes directs the London premiere of Gyles Brandreth and Julian Slade's NOW WE ARE SIXTY - a play with music exploring the life and works of AA Milne.

Milne achieved immortal worldwide fame and fortune when he created the character of 'Winnie The Pooh' in stories written for his infant son, Christopher Robin.

Yet the acclaim of those "four slim volumes" eclipsed the main legacy of the man who wrote plays, poetry and novels which delighted readers long before he started writing for children ... a fact that haunted the man whose humour and wit enchanted generations, but hid experiences of a much darker nature.

Brandreth and Slade's affectionate tribute to AA Milne combines high farce with nostalgia and drama in a theatrical production which celebrates the genius behind an extremely private man in a public spotlight.

Starring Olivier Nominee Andrew C Wadsworth (KISS ME, KATE) as AA Milne alongside West End star Charlotte Page (THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA) and television favourite Russell Grant (STRICTLY COME DANCING) "Now We Are Sixty" is a unique theatrical event not to be missed.
