Publicity material for this event says:

It’s 1961, Gary wants to borrow a few bob off his sister Sandy to go dancing at Town Baths. Gary wants her to iron his trousers. He also fancies Keith’s bird – and that’s where the trouble starts.

Expect a beautiful funny play, full of secrets and poetry, about the monochrome 1950’s being shoved aside and replaced by a bright new world.

This entertaining night out includes ‘A Taste of the Sixties’ – get ready for plenty of fun from the decade!

Written and performed by Cheshire writer Joy Winkler. Stars Josie Cerise from the new series of 'Grandpa in my Pocket' on Cbeebies, and Harvey Robinson who joins the cast after rave reviews as Mr. Wolf in ‘Little Red and the Big Bad Wolf’ at Liverpool's Unity Theatre with Action Transport Theatre.

“Bursts with young voices, full of humour and grit.”

“Took me right back to those heady days (nights) jiving.”

“A deft and moving portrayal of tensions in family life, of the challenge of being who you are or being who other people want you to be.”

Suitable for Age 11+

'Lightning under their Skirts’ is former Cheshire Poet Laureate Joy Winkler’s fourth show with award-winning director Kevin Dyer.

A Storm in the North production in association with Action Transport Theatre. Supported using public funding by The National Lottery through Arts Council England.
