Our next production is Lucky Sods by John Godber at the Swan Studio, 22nd – 25th March 2017. When Morris and Jean win the National Lottery to the tune of two million pounds – they can’t believe their luck. But the cracks in their marriage widen, their past catches up with them and their relatives become increasingly resentful. Jean keeps winning and Morris takes off to Amsterdam with an old flame, but will his prophecy that bad luck always follows good turn out to be true?
John Godber’s bittersweet comedy of northern married life gives us food for thought on winning the lottery and its impact on a couples’ relationship.
