A Month of Sundays is a comedy by Bob Larbey (2014)[1]

The original text

A comedy about the difficulties inherent in growing old. Cooper who has gone into a nursing home rather than become a burden on his family, flirts valiantly with the female staff, banters with the other old folks and keeps a close check on his "record of physical deteriorations”

A Month of Sundays was first produced on 14 November, 1985, at The Nuffield Theatre, Southampton and was then transferred to the Duchess Theatre in London in February 1986, starring George Cole and Geoffrey Bayldon.

Transposed to a nursing home in the USA, it was performed at the Ritz Theatre on Broadway from 16-18 April 1987[2].
