September in the Rain
25th November 2013 to 30th November 2013
Location: Theatre Royal Glasgow
Catch Claire Sweeney & John Thomson in John Godber’s bittersweet comedy September in the Rain at the Theatre Royal Glasgow this November.
We all love a good seaside holiday and that’s why we go back. It’s what memories are made of and no more than for Northerners Jack and Liz. September in the Rain charts the life of Yorkshire couple Jack and Liz through their annual summer holiday jaunt across the Pennines to Blackpool, which has been a ritual for over 40 years.
It’s the golden age of donkey rides, talent contests, saucy postcards, stripy deckchairs, ice cream, rolled-up trousers and knotted hankies. Follow the journey of Jack and Liz as they dip in and out of time recalling their first holiday as newlyweds, to their last, as OAPs, sharing memories filled with tears and laughter, fish and chips and wet and windy promenades in September.
John Godber’s hilarious comedy conjures up this lost world so vividly you will almost feel the sand in your socks and hear the rain bouncing off your pac-a-mac. ‘September in the Rain’ is a must for any diary.
