Recurring Event Event Series: North Coast Arts Summer Programme 2023

Heartbreak Productions present ‘Bad Dad’ by David Walliams

July 31, 2023 @ 17:00 - 19:00

Join Heartbreak in the open air on The Castle Lawn.

Written by one of the UK’s most popular children’s authors- David Walliams, “Bad Dad” follows Frank and his father Gilbert as they struggle to escape the clutches of the local crime lord and clear Gilbert’s name.

Frank’s dad, Gilbert, wasn’t always considered a criminal. In fact, to Frank and the locals he was no other than the legendary ‘king of the track’, Gilbert the Great. That is, until a tragic accident puts a stop to his track-racing days. Feeling like he has gone ‘from hero to zero’, Frank’s father becomes tempted by the dark allure of life as a get-away driver.

This warm-hearted tale follows the highs and lows of a father and son relationship as they navigate their way through a world of crime, car chases and convicts!

The performance will take place on The Castle Lawn.
