September in the Rain
Wokingham Theatre presents: 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.
Godber’s classic two-hander 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.
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 stooped OAP’s, sharing memories filled with tears and disappointments, fish and chips and wet and windy promenades in September.
Tickets £14 for non members
