About The Awkward Squad

The Awkward Squad

What chance does Lorna have of a quiet weekend when both daughters and her granddaughter descend on her with their own problems in this touching and hilarious family encounter.

Laughter and northern grit can get her only so far - she's spent three decades working for everyone else though the miners' strikes, local milk schemes and library closures and tomorrow she's to have a community centre named after her - but here’s her granddaughter thinking her new boob job is more important!

Audiences are laughing and crying along as a BAFTA, impending divorce, redundancy and a very upmarket caravanette give Lorna and her feisty daughters the chance to reconsider both the past and the future - for everyone.  

What's a woman to do? Accept everything that's thrown at her, or become a fully paid-up member of the 'awkward squad'?

BAFTA-winning Emmerdale writer Karin Young's play is an uplifting, heartfelt comedy, taking a sideways look at the challenges faced by modern women of all ages.

Starring Charlie Hardwick (Val in ITV’s Emmerdale), Barbara Marten (Casualty, Coronation Street, Brookside), Libby Davison (The Bill, Hollyoaks) and Lisa McGrillis (Shakespeare’s Globe & Pitmen Painters)
