Have a theatrical staycation with Sunny Side Up

Prolific playwright John Godber returns to Oldham from Tuesday 19th – Saturday 23rd October with his latest play, Sunny Side Up.

Written, directed and starring John Godber, with Jane Thornton, from the West End hit Scary Bikers, Sunny Side Up is the hilarious and moving account of a struggling Yorkshire coast B&B and the people who run it.

Join down to earth proprietors Barney, Cath and Tina as they share their stories of awkward clients, snooty relatives and eggs over easy, in this seaside feel good rollercoaster which digs into what ‘staycations’ are all about. If you’re thinking of holidaying at home this year, why not book into the Sunny Side boarding house soon?

John Godber is one of Britain’s most prolific playwrights, with hits including: Teechers, Bouncers, Up N Under and April in Paris. The John Godber Company last visited the Coliseum with Gym & Tonic in 2019.

Sunny Side Up is told in Godber’s signature style, which blends authenticity and pathos as he addresses the problems of levelling up, leaving home and never forgetting where you come from.

Sunny Side Up runs at Oldham Coliseum Theatre from Tuesday 19th – Saturday 23rd October.
