Old Souls

Susan Campbell Dargie

Time: 5pm
Dates: Aug 14-19, 21-27
Venue: PQA Venues at Riddle’s Court

This show brought to life the essence of Vintage Vibes and LifeCare Edinburgh – matching someone older and lonely with a volunteer. It’s a soft and lovely comedy about a blossoming friendship between Rosie and Vera, which challenges your expectations of what an “old woman” and a “young girl” should be. Bound together by laughter and Irish coffee we loved seeing their relationship grow and them become an essential part of each other’s lives.

Reviews

something quite magnificent…excellent & funny

The Wee Review

Heartwarming…entertaining and upbeat, Old Souls is at its heart an exploration of the universality of friendship and the need to grasp onto experience to lead a fulfilled life. The friendship between Rosie and Vera is heartwarming, with the usual exchange of life lessons; imposter syndrome and the fear that accompanies any life development are dealt with eloquently and cheerfully, and the consideration of the possible loneliness of old age is moving but sympathetic.

The List

Thaw Fringe Show

Thank you to the writers, cast and crew for supporting LifeCare this festival.

Thaw told the story of Laura. At the peak of her life and at its end. As her mind unravels she is transported back to her most vivid memory.
