September in the Rain
September in the Rain is John Godber’s heart-warming comedy which 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 forty 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 two encounter a multitude of characters during their holidays, and in typical Godber style, the two actors play all the parts.
