Over the Moon with Yellow Breck Road

Gerry Linford’s return to the Court has us over the moon with his heart-warming comedy Yellow Breck Road.  Dot (Gemma Brodrick), mum Carol (Lynn Francis) and dad Billy (Paul Duckworth) are the loveable Potter family who have opened their home to Nan (Eithne Browne) and couch to handyman Uncle Barry (Jake Abraham).  Every good show needs a villain and ours comes in the form of Jamie Greer as money-hungry landlord Harry.

The press have been in to review it and here’s what they had to say:

The Lowdown Magazine – FIVE STARS

“Yellow Breck Road is also incredibly heartwarming. Without spoiling the story for you, the production deals with the themes of love and loss; themes that everyone in the audience could relate to in one way or another.”

Arts City Liverpool – FOUR STARS

Linford marries gentle humour, lavatorial language and some nifty one-liners with a heartfelt exploration of ambition, disappointment and human relations, an exploration that leads to a genuinely emotional denouement.

Liverpool Underlined

“Refreshingly different”

“The combination of the family melodrama and detour to the moon – turning the play on a sixpence – is bold storytelling that pitches Yellow Breck Road somewhere between Red Dwarf, Brookside and late-80s sitcom curio watching.”
