ANNA KIRKE opens in SEEING THE LIGHTS at the New Vic Theatre in Newcastle-under-Lyme playing until the 3rd of October.
In this funny, heart-warming, and uplifting drama, a fractious family arrange a rare get-together for their Mum’s birthday. It might make you wonder why anyone of sound mind would choose to have a family at all!
Long-suffering Terry is a nurse by day and live-in dogsbody for his Mum by night. As her birthday approaches and the family descends, all she wants is for the whole family to see Blackpool lights again – for old times’ sake. If only things were that simple!
Sister Marion’s finding fault with everything, blueeyed boy Kenneth still hasn’t arrived – and don’t even mention the canary! Terry’s at the end of his tether. But, when fate intervenes, can they all forgive and forget to make sure Mum gets her special present?
