The John Godber company return to the SJT with their 2020 sell-out show, Sunny Side Up.

Sunny Side Up is the hilarious and moving account of a struggling Yorkshire coast B&B and the people who run it. Join down to earth proprietors Barney, Cath and Tina as they share their stories of awkward clients, snooty relatives and eggs over easy, in this seaside feel good rollercoaster which digs into what ‘staycations’ are all about. If you’re thinking of holidaying at home this year why not book into the Sunny Side boarding House soon?

Written, directed and starring John Godber with Jane Thornton, from the West End hit Scary Bikers. Sunny Side Up is Godber’s latest play, told in his signature style, which blends authenticity and pathos as he addresses the problems of levelling up, leaving home and never forgetting where you come from.
