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).
POD ran from 31 August - 18 September 2021
ALPHABETTI THEATRE, ST JAMES' BOULEVARD, NEWCASTLE
***YOU CAN WATCH POD ONLINE UNTIL 28 SEPTEMBER HERE***
“Humorous and touching... Ninety emotion-shredding minutes... The theatre feels made for such productions and it’s hard to imagine that they will come much better than Pod.

Pod will be accompanied by a "reaction play" - written in response to the themes of POD and performed as a double bill in the final week of performances. We have also created some audio drama reaction pieces - available here or you can find them on our podcast "PLAYSTREAM"
