Peaslake Players next production is “Breezeblock Park” by Willy Russell, well known for writing plays such as “Educating Rita” and “Blood Brothers”.
This terrific comedy explores the sadness and madness of family life, and is set on a Liverpool housing estate. It is Christmas Eve and a close-knit family gather for the festivities, but lurking beneath the glitzy gift wrap, tired tinsel and fairy lights lie concealed jealousies, petty squabbles and a secret. As the drinks flow, feathers fly and a daughter’s news threatens to tear the family apart.
The play is directed by Lee Johnson, who teaches drama at Hurtwood House and has directed numerous plays and musicals. He is backed by an experience crew and talented cast who are sure to bring this moving, yet funny, story to life.
At Peaslake Memorial Hall from May 10th to 12th at 7.45pm. Tickets £8.50.
