CHALET LINES at Live Theatre Newcastle

Sold out

This Autumn Lee Mattinson’s comedy drama Chalet Lines travels to Live Theatre Newcastle after a popular run at the Bush in Spring 2012

Butlins Skegness, Chalet Number 12, where the Walker women have been holidaying since 1961.

This year it’s Nana Barbara’s seventieth and everyone’s airing their dirty laundry. Loretta’s had too many camp cocktails, Jolene’s fallen tits over teeth for a Redcoat and Abigail’s harbouring more than knickers and hairspray in her suitcase.

A shockingly funny journey through five decades of birthdays, wedding and hen dos which asks can we ever really cut the apron string that ties us to our parents?
