After a life of hard graft, retirement isn’t at all what Albert Nobbs had expected. Instead of relaxing and taking things at a leisurely pace, the curmudgeonly Albert finds himself bored and nagged senseless by his wife Connie. But Albert’s world is soon turned upside-down by the sudden death of Connie in a road accident, and he struggles to find a reason to carry on - until Connie returns as a ghost and sets about organising a fulfilling retirement for Albert, including matchmaking with her best friend Rose. Desite Albert’s protestations, he gradually learns to overcome his reluctance and begins to explore new opportunities, so that he and Connie can continue with their journeys in different directions. A Blithe Spirit for the working class, Albert Nobbs charms and delights in equal measures, simultaneously devastatingly painful and delightfully funny. “Hull Truck Theatre Company have discovered yet another remarkable new writer” - Daily Mail
