Coracle in association with Alphabetti Theatre, supported by Arts Council England, present Pod - a new comic drama by Arabella Arnott, directed by Matt Jamie.
"Witty and insightful...
a total triumph"
(the.avante-garde.co.uk on "Overdue" by Arabella Arnott)
Rose has organised a weekend away with her sister, Daisy, and mum, Iris. Husband Dan is there too, although he'd rather be training for his marathon. The four of them are spending the weekend together in a camping pod. It's a celebration of their dad, Geoff, who would have loved to be there for his birthday...
As the family gather together, they end up sharing more than just a cramped camping pod and a bottle of gin. Secrets are revealed and they find answers to questions nobody was expecting to be asked.
A heartfelt drama about identity, dealing with grief, and running away from secrets (and bulls).
Judi Earl, Kylie Ann Ford, Arabella Arnott, Dave Raynor
