Living On Fresh Air by John Godber
In this breath-taking state of the nation comedy, the double BAFTA and Olivier Award Winning partnership of John Godber and Jane Thornton pull on their walking boots, pack up their knapsacks, and tackle modern life head on.
19 - 22 April
1h 50m (including interval)
Newly retired couple Caroline and Dave have everything they have ever wanted; a nice house, a hot tub, a small mortgage, a few savings and a new smart meter. But with Covid and the cost of living crisis things are changing. Their children have moved back home, their money is disappearing, the hot tub’s gone, the lights are going out and the smart meter is stressful. No wonder they feel like starting again, and with their new found hobby of walking it feels like they have.
From the Wolds, to the Dales, from the Lakes to Scafell, they’re determined to get out and keep positive, but with rising bills, rising temperatures and the family home full, there’s only so far you can go when you’re living on fresh air.
But Caroline and Dave are as tough as old boots, and as they reach another peak, they both recognise that there is always another mountain to climb.
If you liked John and Jane in The Scary Bikers, you’ll love them in Living on Fresh Air!
