Take a trip to Sunny Rhyl
October 17, 2011
The Lantern Theatre will be whisking us off to warmer climes and more innocent times this weekend, as it presents the touring production of Sunny Rhyl by Dividers Productions.
A new play by Paul Kelly and directed by Steve Davies, Sunny Rhyl is set in July 1962. The Beatles are playing the Dansette, Miss Sunny Rhyl will be crowned in the pavilion and the pier is about to be sold.
The play is a comedy drama about the relationship between Lola, an upper class idealist at a crossroads in her young life, and working class Francis, a dreamer in danger of losing his beloved job working a deckchair concession.
A journey of discovery, big dippers, beauty contests, singing and paddling just might save the day for this unlikely pair, brought together by an innocent seaside town that can’t help but change.
The play premiered in Chester in March this year, and proved such a success it is now on a tour of venues across Merseyside, Chester and North Wales.
Sunny Rhyl is on at the Lantern on Blundell Street for one night only this Saturday (October 22). For tickets or more information, visit the website
