Telling the story of Mandy a young Bluecoat at Pontins Pakefield Holiday Park during the hazy summer days of 1983. Set against a backdrop of legwarmers, jelly sandals and the Tory landslide, Miriam looks back on a summer romance that changed everything. Nostalgic and bittersweet, a play for anyone who’s ever had their own ‘Dirty Dancing’ moment and for anyone who wishes they had.
To be enjoyed whilst walking and dreaming along Lowestoft beach…
