Take a break with a trip to Blackpool as a theatre group get ready for its latest production.

Jack and Liz are played by David and Sylvia Hill who are performing September in the Rain

Members of West Bromwich group CADS are back with their second play this year called September in the Rain by award winning playwright John Godber.

September in the Rain is a true story and tells the tale of Jack and Liz from Yorkshire who are reminiscing about their many trips to Blackpool during rainy Septembers.

Group members say the story is "touching and nostalgic as well as being witty, funny and true to life".

Jack and Liz are played by David and Sylvia Hill, stalwarts of CADS who have taken on this two-hander to help raise funds for replacing the lighting system in the theatre.

The play will take the audience on an emotional roller-coaster seeing Jack and Liz looking back at their lives through the good times and the bad.

September in the Rain will be performed at The Theatre, Gayton Road Community Centre, West Bromwich for two nights only on September 6 and 7.

Tickets are on sale now priced at £8.
