About the Play:

Five @ Fifty is a full-length black comedy by Brad Fraser. Four friends decide to hold an intervention for their fifth friend. But are they really the best people to sing the virtues of abstinence?

When Olivia loses control at her fiftieth birthday party, her three best friends decide to intervene once and for all, much to the irritation of Olivia and her lover, Norma. But is she the only one battling a demon? Or do each of these women face an addiction of one kind or another? 5@50 is a raw and darkly comedic portrayal of turning fifty in contemporary society, and of the friendships we can't live without.

Five @ Fifty had its world premiere in 2011 at the Royal Theatre Exchange in Manchester, England and its North American premiere at the PAL Studio Theatre in Vancouver in 2016.

Cast: 5 women

"Wickedly funny...proves that the still daring and laugh-out-loud funny writer Brad Fraser has not lost his golden touch." Whatsonstage.com

"Hilariously explicit...each character is lovably ghastly." The Daily Express

"Enough rip roaringly funny lines...to populate a satisfying sitcom." The Stage

"The dialogue...simmers, crackles and explodes with a pace that is seductive and irresistible...though-provoking and funny. Highly entertaining." Liverpool Daily Post
