Perfect Pitch
a comedy by John Godber

On-stage at the Devonshire Studio, Chatsworth Centre, West Gate, Long Eaton
Thursday 1st November - Saturday 3rd November 2007


Ron, a prematurely retired head teacher, and his wife Yvonne, a middle-aged would-be marathon runner, have bought their first caravan and are trying it out on a downmarket site near Scarborough. All is well until the peace is shattered with the arrival of another caravan, a cross between a chicken shed and beach hut. Ron and Yvonne listen aghast to uninhibited shrieks of passion coming from the rocking van, and rightly fear the worst - the neighbours from hell have arrived! They meet fun girl Steph and amiable slob, Grant (he breeds pit-bull terriers). The slightly snobby Yvonne agrees to join Steph for a night out to watch a male strip show and enters wholeheartedly into the spirit of things. Gradually Ron and Yvonne are sucked into the other couple's lifestyle and matters come to a head after a talent contest…

John Godber is one of the best observers of human behaviour around and he certainly knows how to fool the audience into looking at themselves and then laughing at their funny little ways. 'Perfect Pitch' is about people coming together through the world of caravanning, and it uses this world to explore other themes including the class divide and disintegrating relationships.
