This year’s summer production by the Walkington Pantomime Players is a play by John Godber called ‘Lucky Sods.’ The play is a hilarious and compassionate comedy about guilt, luck, and superstition, and lives changed forever.
Jean and Morris are the lucky sods of the title – they’ve just won the lottery. Morris bought the ticket and picked the numbers, but Jean changed one at the last minute. They sat, they watched, they won, it happened to them. Nothing on Friday and two million pounds on Saturday. But is it a dream come true?
Bad luck seems to follow after good, and as Jean and Morris keep striking gold, their lives are slowly coming apart, unnoticed amidst the glamour of Hollywood and Venice and a new conservatory.
