‘Plenty of funny & engaging moments’: INVISIBLE ME – New Wimbledon Theatre Studio

Bren Gosling’s new play Invisible Me focuses on the life of three people who have recently turned 60. It is refreshing to see a show that talks about sex, life and relationships for the over 60s, given our culture’s obsession with youth. There is a strong theme of reinvention that I enjoyed, as it is good to be reminded that we can adapt and shake things up at any age.
