HEAD down to the Royalty Theatre for its interpretation of John Godber’s culture-clash comedy Perfect Pitch.

The show will run for five performances from Tuesday, March 5, until March 9.

Set on a Yorkshire caravan site, the play follows a middle-class couple whose idyllic holiday is crashed by brassy pair of lovers who pitch up alongside them.

Ron, a prematurely-retired head teacher, and his wife, Yvonne, a would-be marathoner, park up on a cliff in Yorkshire.

The dull, snobbish couple’s peace is shattered when the sound of noisy lovemaking heralds the arrival of Steph and Grant, a young, working-class pair of seasoned caravanners,

Originally commissioned in 1998 by the Stephen Joseph Theatre, Perfect Pitch is one of Godber’s best plays, and its popularity remains undiminished. All tickets, priced £8, for forthcoming productions are available to buy online from Ticket Source.

They are also available from the Tourist Information Centre on Tel. 553 2000 and can be purchased from the theatre’s Box Office on the night of the performance.
