The XV Theatre Company are delighted to have been invited back for a fourth year as 'theatre company in residence' for the Bedford Park Festival, West London's biggest arts festival.
Perfect Pitch, a comedy by John Godber, was first performed in 1998 at the Stephen Joseph Theatre in Scarborough, commissioned by Alan Ayckbourn.
"It's supposed to be a relaxing weekend.
I've ruptured myself and lost three stone, and we've only been here twenty minutes."
Ron and Yvonne have gone camping in a caravan bought with Ron's early retirement money.
At a cliff's edge, with a view of the sea, they are looking forward to a life of relaxing after stressful careers, to touring in France perhaps, after a trial run in the campsites of England.
But what they imagined would be an uneventful time to themselves is interrupted when Grant, a bull-terrier breeding, middle-aged former miner pitches up next to them with his girlfriend Steph, a girl in her twenties.
Their loud arguments, and even louder love-making, breaks the silence Ron and Yvonne had built around themselves, forcing them to accept situations, and home truths, far outside their comfort zone.
