It’s World Cup Final day 1966. It’s also Laura & Joe’s wedding reception – what could possibly go wrong? A charming, funny, immersive play, with lots of period pitch perfect details, and a great swinging 60s soundtrack.
30th of July 1966, a date that would go down in history, the day of the World Cup Final at Wembley between England and West Germany. But it is also the wedding day of Laura and Joe, and we are at the reception with their family and friends! Will this be a nuptial fiasco?
'It Is Now' is an immersive play set at their wedding reception, sound-tracked by iconic songs of the swinging sixties. As you join them for their big day, can Laura keep your attention away from the most iconic game of football England has ever played? Will the day be filled with 'A Groovy Kind of Love', or will it end in 'Tears'?
Someone has snuck a radio in to listen to their team's crucial match. The groom appears to have a very friendly relationship with the bride's best friend. The mother of the bride is frantic, the father flummoxed. And a bonkers relative gets a bit too tipsy and is rampantly disorderly.
Whether you're on the side of the bride or the groom, of England or (dare it be said?) Germany, this is a cracking evening of witty romance and good-humoured drama, pitch perfect period details, and some great 60s music, from Dusty Springfield and The Supremes, to The Beach Boys and The Beatles.
This is a great chance to dig out those 60's flares, that ridiculous hat, or your football gear, for a wedding reception like no other!
Suitable for those aged 15 and over.
