AUDIENCES will be invited to take a peek into the highs and lows of family life in Backwell Playhouse’s next production.
Happy Families, by John Godber, is showing at the venue from January 26-29.
On his graduation day, John looks back over his teenage years, recalling all the embarrassments, tensions, joys and sorrows of family life.
As he grows older and becomes more educated he feels less comfortable with his working class family who can’t understand his growing intellect and his theatrical aspirations.
The play paints an affectionate and appealing portrait of an ordinary family struggling to cope with change, bereavement and the generation gap.
Tickets are £10 and performances start at 7.30pm. To book seats call 01275 462621.
