A charity shop of discarded, unwanted items - but that's no way to talk about the staff!

This romantic comedy about finding love the second (or third or fourth) time round is from a writer dubbed Scotland’s greatest living dramatist.

Suddenly single and with the dreaded ‘big five-0’ staring her in the face, Susan – a charity shop volunteer – also has to cope with a father in his second childhood, a daughter in the throes of aggravated adolescence and an ex who, unfortunately, still has the power to wound.

Set on three different days in one year – 6th January, Valentine’s Day and Christmas Eve – Good Things is a poignant, hilarious play with a lot to say about finding love later in life.


Be prepared to laugh, cry, laugh and then start again. This is what really goes on in those charity shops…!


Tickets are now available for just £12. Buy online or from the Box Office.
