The John Godber Company are bringing a brand-new hilarious John Godber comedy 'Living on Fresh Air' to the East Riding Theatre this March. The show, part of a collaboration with Harrogate Theatre, stars John Godber and Jane Thornton as newly retired couple Caroline and Dave who have everything they have ever wanted; a nice house, a hot tub, a small mortgage, a few savings and a new smart meter. But with Covid and the cost of living crisis things are changing. Their children have moved back home, their money is disappearing, the hot tub’s gone, the lights are going out and the smart meter is stressful. No wonder they feel like starting again, and with their new found hobby of walking it feels like they have.

From the Wolds, to the Dales, from the Lakes to Scarfell, they’re determined to get out and keep positive, but with rising bills, rising temperatures and the family home full, there’s only so far you can go when you’re living on fresh air.

But Caroline and Dave are as tough as old boots, and as they reach another peak, they both recognise that there is always another mountain to climb.

In this breath-taking state of the nation comedy, the double BAFTA and Olivier Award Winning partnership are joined by actor Peter McMillan, who has just finished a run in The ERT's Christmas show, to bring you an unforgettable night at the theatre. 

'Living on Fresh Air' is at the East Riding Theatre 15th-25th March, with select matinees, and tickets from £15 on sale now!
