What happens when family becomes just a game for other people to watch?

Find out at The Dukes on Friday 12th November.

The Lancaster theatre will be hosting the award-winning play Blowing, a darkly comedic story of a disintegrated family which no-one has got round to leaving yet.

Jules Bradley has it all. Devoted husband, high achieving kids, 45-years-old  but she doesn’t look a day over 21. She organises a special birthday brunch to celebrate but her children are not prepared to play along with the lies any more.

Blowing is a new piece of international theatre about dreams, destruction and deceit,  written by one of the most talented contemporary playwrights in the Netherlands, Jeroen van den Berg.

And Fanshen’s production won the Young Angels Award in 2009 presented by Company of Angels who were set up in 2001 to foster and produce new and experimental theatre for young audiences.

Blowing is recommended for anyone aged 11 and over.
