A TRUE STORY
Set in Blackpool summer 1953 Not Long After The New Queens Coronation, Yorkshire miners Eddie and Tommy who along with most of their town head down to the sea side for the annual summer wakes. Eddie had almost missed the bus and turned up with no suitcase, Eddie is nursing a dark Secret, now he can never go back to Yorkshire he won’t go to prison or allow some Shocking family secrets to ever come into the light. All he must do now is persuade his secret and always scared boyfriend Tommy to go on the run, and already he knows Tommy won’t as he is a proud son of Yorkshire and has a warm and loving family nothing at all like eddies clan. The lads find themselves at the withering heights on sea guest house run by the delightful caustic and eccentric Gladys and her downtrodden but soon to be turning daughter Maureen and Red Ethel a foul mouthed ex communist ex show girl grandmother.The boys soon get tangled up in this ongoing feud amid a world of endless interruptions offering cakes and opinions of every variety as Gladys puts on her Hollywood stars persona to help her cope with life Joan Crawford to clean house Bette Davies to entertain etc. . Upstairs in the Heathcliff and Cathy suite we meet Mr Elbridge a heterosexual man who will soon become his three female alter egos Patty Margaret and Phyllis respectively as he works up the courage to take the walk from north pier to south pier as a woman ! An annual Blackpool tradition for those in the know.
Blackpool sands is a black comedy with an emotional punch based on real life events and people that lead Eddies character to begin the long fight for LGTB rights and acceptance, one man’s spark of outrage at how his unjust treatment triggers a lifetime of activism.
