September In The Rain by John Godber
Newly-wed Yorkshire couple Liz and Jack have their first trip to 1950 Blackpool. They holiday in a world of deckchairs and donkeys. As the Wurlitzer organ plays they sway together on the floor of the Tower Ballroom. For thirty years, come rain or shine, they never miss their annual week on Blackpool sands. Moving backwards and forwards through time, 30 years married life unfolds through laughter and tears, boarding houses and fish and chips.
Escaped Alone by Caryl Churchill
Three old friends and a neighbour, backyard tea with environmental disaster, exploring themes of politics, crisis, communication and female endurance. A summer of afternoons in the back yard. Tea and catastrophe! The pleasant conversation is frequently interrupted, by the neighbour, Mrs. Jarrett, who addresses the audience with long monologues about an apocalyptic world. The play
speaks to our fears about the future of the planet, as well as our personal anxieties, while also offering some salvation in the strength of our community, as friends, neighbours or open-minded theatre goers. Humour and pathos.
This play will be presented on stage as a “rehearsed reading”.
