Oh We Do Like To Be

From 6th July 2021
Latitude 2021

HighTide presents a work in progress extract of a new play by commissioned writer Sonia Jalaly.

A stack of postcards, a trail of secrets and an innate curiosity leads Beth to Blackpool where the lights flash and the rain glistens.

On a journey to find out who she is, Beth encounters all of what Blackpool has to offer from ballroom dancers to drag queens to organists to tribute acts. Someone must have the answers she’s looking for.

Oh We Do Like To Be tells an intergenerational story about nostalgia, identity and the good old British seaside through the eyes of a woman who longs to know who she is, featuring appearances from the likes of Bonnie Tyler, Celine Dion and Bucks Fizz (kind of…)

Oh We Do Like To Be is part of the Latitude Festival.
