Council house dwellers Betty, Reeny, Vera and their men regard themselves as a close knit family team despite their concealed jealousies and occasional recriminations. When Betty's daughter Sandra announces she is pregnant and intends to live unmarried with her student lover, the news explodes like an atom bomb.

Performed on September 16th & 17th 2016 at the East Didsbury Methodist Church

Breezeblock Park, by Willy Russell, the author of Educating Rita and Stags & Hens, is a comedy-drama about the sadness and madness of family life for 3 middle aged couples and their children on a Liverpool council estate in the 1970's. First produced in 1975, it was a sell-out success staring Julie Walters and Pete Postlethwaite.
