East Riding Theatre have announced that this year’s autumn production will be the premiere of Gladys: A Beverley Love Story by Jane McLauchlan.

Funny, true-to-life and touching, Gladys: A Beverley Love Story is the heart warming heroic tale of enduring love in everyday life.

Gladys and Alfie have been married for 45 years. Their nest is empty and their go-getter son is pursuing a ‘high powered’ career as an estate agent in Leeds. What is left for Gladys and Alfie apart from cheese rolls at the local cafe and the daily crossword?

Set in Beverley, this slice-of-life drama was written by New Zealand playwright Jane Mclauchlan who is inspired by the works of Harold Pinter and the reality TV show ‘GoggleBox’.

It will be directed by Mike Friend whose relationship with ERT began with the inaugural production of ‘A Christmas Carol’ and includes ‘Oliver Twist’ and ‘Sparrow’. He is currently artistic director of The Lyttelton Arts Factory in New Zealand.

Mike said: “It’s great to be back at ERT to work on a new play. I’m sure audiences will see themselves and connect the play with their own lives.”

The show will run on Thursday 29th September to Saturday 22nd October.

Tickets are £18.50 (£17.50 Conc. & £14 under 23s) on sale now and available from: https://www.eastridingtheatre.co.uk/gladys-a-beverley-love-story/
