WHEN YOUR LIFE’S A JOKE IT’S TIME TO STAND UP!

The story follows a college lecturer, Martin Dawson played by Nick Figgis and his hope to escape from obscurity by having a screenplay made into a film.

We see his relationship with his ex-wife and children, his mistress and film agent along with his sometimes overbearing parents. We witness his eventual breakdown during a cathartic rant on an open mic spot at a local comedy club in front of a packed house.

During the performance, we see flash backs to a memorable trip to Whitby with all the pathos and comic talent you could expect from Godber as our hero endures an insane weekend with his parents. This film is a universal story that resonates with most people illustrating the sometimes confusing and conflicted nature of love of all kinds.

Written by BAFTA WINNER JOHN GODBER and directed by AWARD WINNING DANIEL COLL


The 7.15pm screening on Thursday 29 March will have an introduction and Q&A with the director Daniel Coll.


Great news for film fans! Our cinema sound system has been upgraded to Dolby Surround 7.1, which enhances audio definition and provides better sound for all seats.
