Bill Milner and Sheila Hancock - photo by Darren Bell
Harold and Maude is an idiosyncratic romantic fable told though the eyes of the most unlikely pairing: a compulsive, self-destructive young man and a devil-may-care, septuagenarian bohemian.
Dame Marjorie "Maude" Chardin (Sheila Hancock), is a free spirit who wears her hair in braids, believes in living each day to its fullest, and "trying something new every day".
Harold Parker Chasen is an 18-year-old man who is obsessed with death, attends funerals of strangers for entertainment and stages elaborate fake suicides.
Through meeting Maude at a funeral, he discovers joy in living for the first time.
Part dark comedy and romantic innocence, Harold and Maude dissolves the line between darkness and light along with ones that separate people by class, gender and age.
