This October touring theatre company The John Godber Company visits Lancaster for the first time, bringing Godber's hilarious 'Perfect Pitch' to the stage!

Originally written in the early 2000s, and described as “ A triumph “ by The Sunday Times, this autumn John Godber re-envisions his hilarious play for a 2024 audience.

"When teacher Matt borrows his parent's caravan for a week on the Yorkshire coast with partner Rose, they were expecting four days of hill running and total de-stress. But with a Tribfest taking place nearby, Grant and Steph’s pop-up tent is an unwelcome addition to their perfect pitch.

Campers and caravaners clash in this classic comedy set on an eroding coastline."

The production's all-northern cast includes Tom Gibbons, who played regular Johnny Phillips in The Archers from 2013-2022, and John Godber Company regular Frazer Hammill, who recently performed in John Godber’s ‘Happy Jack’. They are joined by actresses Annie Kirkman, and Laura Jennifer Banks, who is a member of the Godber Theatre Foundation and will be making her professional debut in the production.

John is delighted to be reimagining this play, and cannot wait to bring it back this autumn. ‘Perfect Pitch’ is without a doubt a state of the nation comedy that is by turns not only hilarious but also at times, unsettling.

'Perfect Pitch' is at Dukes Lancaster, 16th-19th October - Book Tickets
