Join Vicky Barret for the inaugural meeting of The Empty Nesters’ Club. If your children have left home and the nest is empty, this is the group for you!  Vicky will share her story of empty bedrooms, fresher's flu, boyfriends, long goodbyes, motorway service stations and trips to Ikea; and how she fought back to be the woman she is today, exhausted!

This hilarious yet touching new play will strike a chord with anyone who endured the upheaval of leaving the family home, and particularly any parents whose children have flown the nest.
