A romantic comedy with loads of laughter and romance thrown in, and with Sean Connery, Karaoke and Scrabble.

Eddie, a stationery salesman of some repute; flash car, flash suit, with flash chit chat, meets Crystal the local casino croupier, gorgeous, funny, confident, the girl of his dreams, but a girl with a past…

He invites her for a getaway break and the two would-be lovers head for a romantic rendezvous in a coastal BnB, where Eddie tries to woo and impress. Will opposites attract and love blossom, or will it be a wet weekend, with no candy floss and love hearts.

From the company that brought you Housebound, My Favourite Summer and Like a Virgin comes this funny, heart warming comedy by Robert Farquhar.

“Kissing Sid James has got to be one of the most hilarious plays ever written.” – Bolton Evening News

“You know a true comic playwright has arrived when the audience start laughing before the actors tell the jokes.” – The Guardian
