Wish You Weren’t Here
24 January – 10 February 2024 (then touring)
Tanya Moiseiwitsch Playhouse, Sheffield
Wish You Weren’t Here is a heart-warming new comedy about beaches, bonding, and body image. The play follows teenager Mila and her mum Lorna as they head off on holiday to spend some quality time together, only to discover that the British seaside town, which was once their annual sunny escape, could really use some attention – just like their relationship. Will uncomfortable truths, tearful conversations, and arcade antics help them find their way?
Wish You Weren’t Here explores an intimate mother-daughter relationship, the agony of growing up, single parenthood and finding your way in the world as women.
A Sheffield Theatres and Theatre Centre Production.
