A superbly sensitive piece of writing.

A great production, one that captures the mood and moments perfectly 

Ipswich24 Magazine

Wonderful visuals...with some cracking performances. Nicky’s play is welcome treat.

Colchester Gazette

Beautifully acted by the cast of three. An excellent piece of writing that has echoes of nostalgia for a distant past.

The Journal Magazine

“It is 1966. I am sixteen years old and I am on the Venetian bridge with Brian Joy from the Golden Sands Guesthouse and he has bought me a 99 and I am on top of the world. Now I am 16, I know what boys want and why you mustn’t give it to them.”

Tensions are high in Clacton-on-Sea. Guesthouse owner Val has been taken ill and both her estranged daughter Lisa and ambitious grand-daughter Chloe have arrived to lend a hand. Chloe is close to Val, having spent most of her childhood raised by her grandmother. But Lisa and her mother are not on best terms. In this poignant and beautifully observed drama, three generations of women have to set aside differences as they decide the fate of their family-run B & B.

Guesthouse asks what's it like when the town you were proud to grow up in becomes impoverished? What does it take to keep going? And what does it take to face the truth?

Written by Essex playwright Nicola Werenowska and directed by Tony Casement this new play will tour across the East of England.

Our BSL performance will be on Thursday 26th April at the Sir John Mills Theatre, Ipswich. For more information, please contact Box Office on 01473 211498.
