It’s 1961.

Gary wants to borrow a few bob off his sister Sandy to go dancing at the Town Baths.

He wants her to iron his trousers because no one puts a crease in them like she does.

He also fancies Keith’s bird – and that’s where the trouble starts.


Full of secrets and poetry, this beautiful funny play is about the monochrome 1950s being shoved aside and replaced by a bright new world.

Includes ‘A Taste of the Sixties’ – imagine Babycham, cheese and pineapple chunks on cocktail sticks as party snacks. Get ready for plenty of fun from the decade!

Storm in the North in association with Action Transport Theatre presents ‘Lightning under their Skirts’, Joy Winkler’s new play with award-winning director Kevin Dyer. Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
