It’s the first day of Scarborough’s summer season and Tom and Chelsea have holiday jobs at the Court Hotel. They love their work – they could watch it all day, especially guests Len and Betty whose fifty year old marriage has run aground on holiday. So when the septuagenarian Palm Court Boys band are delayed, Tom and Chelsea must fill the entertainment slot with their take on Len and Betty’s tribulations.

“Godber and Thornton have produced a pair of one-act seaside dramas that belong together like a bucket and spade.” – The Guardian
