New John Godber comedy Living On Fresh Air - starring the writer himself and his actress wife Jane Thornton - is on a short northern tour, taking it to Harrogate Theatre March 31-April 8; Stephen Joseph Theatre, Scarborough, April 19-22 and Theatre Royal, Wakefield, May 2-4.

Mr and Mrs Godber are newly retired couple Caroline and Dave who have everything they have ever wanted: a nice house, a hot tub, a small mortgage, a few savings and a new smart meter.

But with Covid and the cost of living crisis, things are changing. Their children have moved back home, their money is disappearing, the hot tub’s gone, the lights are going out and the smart meter is stressful. No wonder they feel like starting again – and with their new-found hobby of walking, it feels like they have.

From the Wolds to the Dales, as they reach another peak they both recognise there is always another mountain to climb.

The double BAFTA and Olivier Award-winning partnership is joined on stage by Yorkshire actor Peter McMillan and the show is directed by John and Neil Sissons and designed by Graham Kirk.
