No Strapline

A Fine Bright Day Today

Friday 6 July–Saturday 21 July 2012

A New Vic production

by Philip Goulding, directed by Peter Leslie Wild

Set in a northern coastal town, this warmly funny and big-hearted play looks at moving on, chance meetings and middle-aged love.

Margaret’s been widowed more than 30 years, her trawlerman husband lost at sea. Now grown-up daughter Rebecca is making waves and leaving home to move in with her boyfriend. So Margaret gets ready for a life of meals for one, washing up and making sure she’s off the gas.

But when she impulsively agrees to take in a lodger, it’s not long before he’s disturbing the calm, dripping rainwater on her nice clean floors and appearing for breakfast in his boxers. But Milton turns out to have hidden depths. Maybe they won’t be just ships in the night, when you think life’s all washed up you just might find there’s a future after all.
