Performances Weds 14th & Thurs 15th March 7.30pm
A grandmother, mother and a daughter have to set aside differences as they decide the fate of their family-run Guesthouse. Battling family demons and the crashing waves of a troubled past, tensions are high in Clacton-on- Sea. Exploring the lives of three generations of women, 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 show will tour across the East of England.
