Nathan Evans

you're never too old to change your tune

A gentleman called Joan lands up in a care home like a colourful, combustible cocktail... ticking.

A gentleman called Jim doesn’t know what’s hit him... everything about his new next-door neighbour is triggering.


Battle begins. May the best man win. But beneath antics and antique armour plating, what are both hiding?


Maybe they’ve more than a wall in common?


Might they even be batting for the same team?

One Last Song

is a necessary love story, both profoundly moving and profoundly optimistic.

It will inevitably infiltrate your heart.’


‘One Last Song is a beautiful, smouldering, hilarious and sparkling testament to queer intimacy and the revolutionary potency of queer creative activism. Every page filled my heart with Pride.’

‘One Last Song is edgy, funny and moving. A heady mix that packs an emotional punch.’


‘Touching, powerful, punchy, funny and sweet. An absolute delight.’


 ‘Side-splittingly funny and achingly romantic. A play about ageing disgracefully that’s ferociously full of life.’ RIKKI BEADLE-BLAIR,
