Lightning Under Their Skirts

Joy Winkler

Gary wants to borrow five-bob from his sister so he can go dancing down the Town Baths. Gary wants her to iron his trousers – because no-one puts a crease in like she does. Gary wants Keith’s bird, but gets in a fight, loses, then asks the nurse putting in the stitches to make sure it leaves a scar.

This bright, beautiful, funny play by former Cheshire Poet Laureate, Joy Winkler, is about one age becoming another, about the monochrome 50’s being pushed aside by a bright new world. Lightning Under their Skirts offers a night of Babycham and liberation, of dancing… and also the world’s best music ever written.

A Storm In The North production, in association with Action Transport Theatre.

Suitable for age 11+
