Playwright Ron Aldrige's You're Only Young Twice is a familiar story of late night drinking, parties, and staying in bed until the afternoon.
But it is not teenagers behaving like this, it is Sue's dad Brooksie and his gang from the Over-60s Club, the lead characters in this latest production by the Imperial Players of North Harrow.
Recently widowed, Brooksie has moved in with his daughter after the death of his wife, Grace.
His best friend Tom is about to marry a widow, Julia, despite her friends' disapproval, under the influence of Brooksie and his motto "You're only as young as you feel". The wedding plans continue until, one heavy stag night and several indiscretions later, Brooksie suddenly starts feeling his age.
Laurence Conway, the director of the production, explains his choice:
"I just loved this play," he says. "Everybody can relate to it - it is like a slice of everyone's life.
"Many of us hope that there is a bit of Brooksie in us.
"Such comedy is a perfect fit for the current recessionary times: people will leave our performance with a warm feeling, cheered up and having taken their minds off their everyday problems.
"Having paid £5 they will be offered such a good entertainment and a cup of tea with a smile in the interval."
Two of the actors in the play are newcomers to Imperial Players.
Norman Stevenson, who plays Tom, and is a financial adviser in real life, feels that taking part in the performance is a good escape from everyday life.
He says: "Imperial Players are a great bunch of people, very sociable and good fun, so I would recommend them to anyone interested in the theatre. My character Tom breaks free and realises how much he can enjoy himself and grow old disgracefully."
It will also be the first time on the stage for Lisa Gilchrist as Sue, the long suffering daughter of Brooksie.
She says: "There is a great feeling of a community in the group and everyone is very supportive. They always need new members so everyone is very welcome."
