Godfrey’s Last Stand

Written and directed by by Alan Stockdil.

A studio production in the Clubroom.

When Scuddleswick league cricket umpire Godfrey Shackleton wins £3.2m on the lottery in his last season before retirement he knows exactly what he wants to do with the cash. His big dream has always been to officiate an England/Australia match and now he has the means to make that lofty ambition a rip-roaring reality with his best mate and cricketing chum Freddy Fitton at his side.

Godfrey’s Daughter Donna, a single Mum, struggling for cash, is not impressed at her Dad’s decision to chase a dream rather than look after his family. Meanwhile, his Grandson, Justin, looks on wisely. As rifts and repercussions reverberate, can father and daughter compromise and make their peace? This feelgood, gentle comedy will really make the audience think about family, forgiveness, responsibilities, hopes and dreams.

This play was originally a one-act piece which played to great acclaim and delighted its audiences. It was nominated for ‘Best Production’ at Buxton Festival Fringe 2014.
