Coronation Street stars Steven Arnold and Linda Clarke are to star in the World Premiere of Broken Strings at The Tabard Theatre in September 2016.
Following the death of her husband, Rose, is persuaded by her daughter, Susan, to move in with her and her husband David, who she has never got on with in their small two up two down. Rose believes Susan married beneath herself, but because of his love for Susan, David reluctantly agrees to the idea. With tension in the house already at breaking point, Susan falls terminally ill. Her dying words to David are; “Take care of Mum, promise me you won’t put her in a home…”
Broken Strings is a heartwarming, dramatic, thought provoking and at times funny, story of how two people damaged by bereavement, finally discover the truth about themselves, begin to understand one another better and deal with the pain they are both going through.
Written and directed by Joe Wemborne, Broken Strings will be presented at the Tabard Theatre from 6 – 24 September 2016.
