A comedy by Claire Spratt
Pensioner Ron and his son Simon head off on a camping trip, despite neither of them having slept in a tent since a disastrous holiday when Simon was 12. Ron hopes to relax with a bit of fishing, Simon with a good book. But tranquillity does a runner when Jill and Michelle pitch up beside them. This is not the outdoor experience that any of them was hoping for, but everyone seems to have reasons for staying put. Will anyone find what they are looking for? Will Ron manage to catch a fish? Laughter, tears, tenderness and a dollop of camp capers.
Starring Michael Wardle (Gordon in I’m Alan Partridge and Farmer Parkin in Withnail and I) as Ron.

The near-legendary Partington Theatre One Act Play Festival.
The theatre bar opens at 7 0′clock and the curtain goes up at 7.30 each evening. Every night a different programme of very varied one-act plays presented by theatre groups from all over the area and beyond. New writing rubs shoulders with famous classics. A guest adjudicator from Greater Manchester Drama Federation will give an expert critique of each production and dish out certificates and silverware on the final night.
