Can’t Go Back is an original comedy musical set in the glamorous, showbiz world of Yorkshire’s working men’s clubs. Described as Victoria Wood meets Phoenix Nights, Can’t Go Back is an all-singing, all-dancing new musical with a cast of fantastic characters and a collection of hilarious original songs.
Jack is a cruise ship entertainer: Suave, sophisticated and only mildly addicted to late night buffets. After many years at sea, he's forced to return to Yorkshire and visit his sick mother, and his long lost love. He then experiences a world of singing in empty pubs and working men's clubs that he is NOT accustomed to.
Guided by agent Mike Davereux (who insists his surname is NOT the same as Bobby's) a Lancastrian on the wrong side of the Pennine tracks, Jack must adjust to living back with his mum, the loss of his glamorous cruise bubble and bingo. Endless bingo.
James McCann (Book & Lyrics) and Mark Baker (Music) are bringing their lifetimes of gigging and writing experience to the stage and pulling out all the stops to give audiences an amazing night.
Come and join in the fun!
