A brand new comedy about beaches, bonding, and body image

After all those extra shifts, all Lorna wants is a night out on the town and to reconnect with her daughter. All 16-year-old Mila wants is for the world to stop burning. And for someone to take down that ‘Beach Body Ready’ poster, please! 

As mum and daughter check into their ‘premium’ room where they can almost see the sea, they discover that their favourite seaside town could really use some attention– just like their relationship.

Hilarious and heart-warming, Wish You Weren’t Here explores family relationships, the agony of growing up, and how to find your way in the world when you can’t help thinking you’re not good enough.

A Theatre Centre and Sheffield Theatres co-production

Written by Katie Redford and directed by Rob Watt
