Presented by The John Godber Company and Theatre Royal Wakefield
Newly bereft mum Vicky Barret, whose daughter has recently left for university in London, prepares for the inaugural meeting of her new support group – the titular Empty Nesters’ Club – by reflecting on the upheaval of letting go of her not-so-little girl.
If your children have left home and the nest is empty, this is the group for you! Vicky will share her story of empty bedrooms, fresher’s flu, boyfriends, long goodbyes, motorway service stations and trips to Ikea; and how she fought back to be the woman she is today, exhausted!
This brand new play by BAFTA Award-winning playwright John Godber features a host of characters you will love, and some you will hate and will strike a chord with any parents whose children have flown the nest, or anyone who endured the upheaval of leaving the family home.
“A delightful play…” The Yorkshire Post
“Godber is the unsung hero of British Theatre…” The Guardian
