A heartfelt comedy drama about families, identity, dealing with grief and running away from secrets (and bulls). 


Rose has organised a weekend away with her sister, Daisy, and mum, Iris. Husband Dan is there too, although he'd rather be training for his marathon. The four of them are spending the weekend together in a camping pod, in celebration of their dad, Geoff, who would have loved to have been there for his birthday... 


As the family gather together, they end up sharing more than just a camping pod, and as secrets come out they find the answers to questions nobody was expecting to be asked. 

This is a great piece of heartwarming and funny family drama - a highly relatable and touching slice of life, with some great North East talent.

Performed by Arabella Arnott (Best North East Actor 2019, British Theatre Guide), Judi Earl, Kylie Ann Ford and David Raynor.
