Grandparents! Look past the title of the play. This is an inter-generational story that deals with love and loss, hope and sadness as the relationship between Poppy and her Grandad is first thrown together and eventually torn apart. Poppy is 11, has attitude, but dreams of dancing in Blackpool. Ken is something of a hermit, a man living in the past with no television, no computer and no patience. While their relationship is volatile, it's also very funny and strewn with moments of real tenderness. This play is provocative, touching and not at all predictable! A UK mainland amateur premiere. Contains mildly offensive language. Saturday matinee at 2.30pm
Tickets: ���£13, ���£11 (65+), ���£10 (student)
