Staying young is a state of mind for Brooksie!
GROWING old disgracefully is the order of the day in the Caxton Theatre's latest production.
Every parent knows what "that difficult stage" is like, when the kids are staying out until all hours, playing their music too loud and spending most of the day in bed.
In You're Only Young Twice, Sue and Richard have all these problems, but not with their children... it's Sue's dad who's the problem!
Brooksie, a recent widower, is recapturing his youth and loving every minute.

Seeking approval from his late wife Grace throughout, we see Brooksie forging himself a new life while nearly getting barred from the Over-60's Club in the process.
This hilarious and touching play by Ron Aldridge proves that you really are as young as you feel. After a particularly heavy stag night and several major indiscretions, Brooksie suddenly starts feeling his age.
The play is directed by Caxton favourite Brian Blakey, a veteran of stage and small screen.
"The play should strike a chord with the old and the young," he said.
"The cast has had a wonderful time, laughing constantly through rehearsals."
The show is fronted by the very able George Mansfield, playing the lead role of Brooksie to perfection, oozing with natural comedic timing and experience.
George said: "I like playing this sort of character – a lovable rogue and a bit of an old rebel. I think there's a little bit of Brooksie in me!"
