The Empty Nesters’ Club will appear at the Lytham venue on Friday, March 3, following its premiere at Theatre Royal Wakefield.

Godber’s work is predominantly comedy drama based on real life situations. He has previously written international hits such as ‘Shafted!’, ‘Up ‘n’ Under’, ‘The Debt Collectors’ and, most recently, ‘This Might Hurt’.

A spokesman said: “The Empty Nesters’ Club offers a humorous yet poignant look at the pain of the ‘empty nest’ and what befalls parents after the children have outgrown the family home.
