Love Begins at Fifty
By Raymond Hopkins
Directed by Carole Wilson
Anita and Clive DeBanks have been married for a very uneventful 28 years, but all that is about to change. Although in a loveless marriage, Clive has never been unfaithful. However, as preparations for his fiftieth birthday party are underway, Clive feels that life is passing him by and has a yearning for one last fling. To this end he chooses three prospective partners from the 'Lonely Hearts' column in the local paper.
By a strange twist of fate, the same paper is offering a Caribbean cruise, as the first prize in a competition to find the perfect married couple. Anita enters the competition, but keeps it a secret from Clive. A photographer arrives to take the pictures of the happy couple the night that Anita is away but Clive is busy entertaining one of his new dates.
From that point onwards, things get a little complicated, to say the least. The action is fast and furious in this hilarious farce.
