An elderly couple look back on memories of their lives together in the heart-warming comedy September in the Rain which is coming to Chester Little Theatre this month.
White Cobra Theatre Company will make their fourth visit to the Gloucester Street venue when they present John Godber’s popular play on Saturday, October 17 at 7.30pm.
September in the Rain follows the lives of Yorkshire couple Liz and Jack through their annual trek across The Pennines to holiday in Blackpool.
From their honeymoon to a final pilgrimage some 40 years later, it covers a golden era of kiss me quick hats, donkey rides, trips up Blackpool Tower, fun fair rides and fish and chips in the bus shelter on a wet and windy promenade.
Based loosely on Godber’s own grandparents, the two recollect some of the most memorable events from their lives together as they laugh and bicker their way through various trips.
From a once in a lifetime stay at The Metropole Hotel, to their more usual guesthouses run by formidable landladies, the play evokes memories of the classic British seaside holiday.
The couple encounter a multitude of characters during their holidays and the two actors play all the parts.
