"You can't be a Goth, Dad. Your name is Kenneth."
Ella wants her recently bereaved dad Ken to get out more. To meet people. To start dating again. Then Belinda comes along. She's a newly single singer in Belle Epoque, a Geordie Goth band, with her disgruntled teenage son Simon (a.k.a. "Bram") on keyboards. She's a disaster. For Ella.
Ken has had his head turned and his wardrobe will never be the same again. Worse for Ella, Belinda and Bram, arriving in a customised purple hearse, move in to rehearse for a gig at Goth Weekend in Whitby.
In this hilarious and poignant comedy with music, Ella has to wrestle with her own dilemmas, decide whether to sabotage plans for the bank, and Ken and Belinda's Goth happiness...
Goth Weekend features Jessica Johnson, most recently seen in Key Change, and Live Theatre debuts by actors Sean McKenzie, Amy Trigg and Gurjeet Singh.
