“Godber is an ingenious writer who knows how to hit all the right buttons”

“Heartfelt, poignant and a play that will have something to say while class remains an issue”

- The Yorkshire Post

by John Godber

Next March, we will be performing the John Godber comedy, ‘Weekend Breaks’, a play full of bitter-sweet humour which paints a picture of family life that will strike a chord in everyone.

Martin Dawson is a promising writer and academic, spending some time alone on holiday in the Lake District, after trying to patch things up with his wife following a recent extra-marital fling. He invites his parents to visit him for an ‘enjoyable’ weekend break but this soon evolves into an opportunity for the release of the pent-up frustrations of a lifetime.

Described as one of Godber’s best, this is a comedy about culture clashes, wine, wit, Whitby and what it really means to love your parents - even when you want to kill them!

Weekend Breaks

Performances will run from March 13th to 15th and the production will be jointly directed by Geoff Manning and Keith Davis.
