Synopsis

1.     A seemingly average, middle-aged woman (Maxine) finds herself in terrorist and spy situations which are really just normal everyday life.  Every time a chime occurs she answers her shoe phone in a brilliantly timed play of heroics, hallucinations, and hilarity.  Follow Maxine Sharp as she attempts to clean up the town from the evils of Chaos.

 

2.      Three men sit on a park bench to feed ducks and relieve their anger at the disappointments and frustrations of old age by teasing the people they meet. As their friendship deepens they trust each other with their stories and their secrets.

 

3.     Dating in “your Sixties”  is very different to dating in “The Sixties…”

Carol …senior serial On- Line Dater... runs into her old “friend” Frances, a widow,  in a café… and undertakes to bring her up to scratch on the Brave New World of “surfing” for a man….

 

4.     The interior of an art gallery comes alive as distinctly different characters stroll through, each one exposing their personality through their words and actions as they view the displays. The Curator of this gallery is a perfectionist; however, the janitor doesn’t help at all when it comes to one of his special exhibitions.
