Maurice and Kath's kids have left home; the nest is finally empty and a life of gin, golf and overseas jaunts awaits. That is, until the grandchildren arrive. With grace and good humour (and a little song and dance), old rhythms are given new life as they embrace the delights and demands of bath time, babysitting and bundles of joy.

To celebrate forty years of smash-hit success, Roger Hall puts the grand into grandparenting in a charming and tuneful collaboration with UK musical legend Peter Skellern.

Packed with laughter and tinged with tears, You Can Always Hand Them Back is a vintage Kiwicomedy with a heart of gold that no grandparent will want to miss and no would-be grandparent should.
