Nigel Osner in Too Young to Stay in, Too Old to Go Out!

Former barrister Nigel Osner, who almost died when a routine operation went wrong, has fought back and is to perform his one-man show at Buxton Fringe.

Osner, whose 2017 show Angel to Vampire was nominated for best new writing, had open-heart surgery in January 2021. His latest one-man show, Too Young to Stay in, Too Old to Go Out! looks at life for those no longer young.

With simple costume changes, Osner performs original songs and stories by male and female characters. These include Gerald who is having a taxing night out in central London, a rich designer who falls for his hunky gardener, a woman driven mad by her companion on a river cruise and a fading star on an endless tour.

Too Young to Stay in, Too Old to Go Out! can be seen Underground at The Old Clubhouse, Buxton on Tuesday 13 and Wednesday 14 July at 5:30PM and on Thursday 15 July at 4PM.
