Comedy drama One Day I’ll Fly Away, set in a respite home for the elderly, will be staged at Ossett’s St Ignatius Parish Centre.

The story follows Kylie, a 19-year-old who is working at the home after being given 300 hours community service, and Nora, an embittered elderly widow.

The pair start their relationship with a mutual dislike, but as the story unfolds their similarities emerge as it is revealed that they are walking the same path to self destruction.
