September in the Rain
September in the Rain

An award-winning theatre company is returning to
Harborough Theatre with a new production on Saturday.

September in the Rain is coming to the Church Square venue from 7.45pm.

The play tells the story of Liz and Jack’s annual holiday to Blackpool from their Yorkshire home across the Pennines.

It has been written by dramatist John Godber and is based loosely on his own grandparents.

The play covers their lives from their honeymoon, to their final trip some forty years later.

It evokes the bygone age of classic British seaside holidays with donkey rides on the beach, kiss me quick hats, funfair rides and a show on the pier.

The play is being staged by White Cobra Productions, who won awards for the previous show Days of Wine and Roses.

The company swept the board at the British All Winners Festival taking all four of the awards on offer.

Kate Billingham and Richard Jordan, who starred in Days of Wine and Roses, reunite for September in the Rain which has been described as hilarious and moving.

So far the company has produced three full scale theatrical touring productions and this is the fourth tour.

Previous productions have taken the company to Leicestershire, Oxfordshire, Hertfordshire, Cheshire, London, the Isle of Man and the Channel Islands.

White Cobra also plans to perform at the Edinburgh Festival in 2016.

The production of September in the Rain is currently the final leg of the company’s latest tour which has taken in Northampton, Bedford and Whitstable in Kent.

Tickets for the show cost £10 for adults and £9 for over 65s and students.
