Goth Weekend tells the story of a girl growing up in a town where being different is difficult, where conforming is the norm. Mum’s no longer around and dad has started dating a bit too soon. Worst of all he’s dating Belinda, a Goth who looks like a vampire and has her purple hearse parked on the drive. No, worst of all he’s started dressing like one…
Set on the lead-up to Whitby Goth Weekend this funny and provocative play is about who we are and what we pretend to be - and why twice a year in North Yorkshire people dress up like Dracula. Dead good!
“Poignantly funny…grittily poetic and thrillingly imaginative”
