Every once in a while a play comes along that reminds you of the glorious summers of your twenties. The long, hot days, that fantastic trip abroad, the moment when the girl you’ve fancied for years suddenly confesses that she feels the same way, and you live happily ever after…

Originally produced to huge acclaim by Hull Truck in 2007 and featuring the original cast (not to mention a belting ‘90s soundtrack), My Favourite Summer is a comedy for everyone who’s ever been in love and lived to tell the tale.
From the writer of the SJT’s recent Christmas shows A Scarborough Christmas Carol, Alice in Wonderland and Treasure Island, and this year’s The Snow Queen. A semi-staged performance, directed by the author.
“A blissfully funny rites of passage comedy” Daily Telegraph
