Claire Sweeney and John Thomson star
September in the Rain
September in the Rain charts the life of Yorkshire couple Jack and Liz told 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.
With Claire Sweeney and John Thomson playing Liz and Jack, 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.
Claire Sweeney is one of the country's theatre and television favourites with recent credits including Educating Rita, Tell Me on a Sunday and Legally Blonde. She is joined by John Thomson with television credits including many comedy classics including Cold Feet and The Fast Show.
Join Jack and Liz as they dip in and out of time together recalling their first holiday as newlyweds, to their last, sharing memories filled with tears and laughter, fish and chips and wet and windy promenades in September.
Directed by John Godber
