THE TRIALS and tribulations of lucky Lottery winners Jean and Morris Sod are played out on the stage in the comedy ‘Lucky Sods’, which is the latest offering from Hucknall’s Lovelace Theatre Group.

In a complete coincidence, the play, which is written by John Godber, is being performed at the John Godber Centre on Ogle Street where the company are based.

Leisa Sisson and Tony Garwood take on the leading roles in the show, which is directed by Chris Knowles and also features Richard Alton, Kirsty Thorne, Beth Garwood, Bernie Kirk and Christopher Stevenson.

Among the cast is Linda Mayes, who joined the group in its previous guise as Hucknall Dramatic Society and has been a member for 39 years.

She said: “The play is full of comic moments but also gives a pertinent reminder that winning lots of money doesn’t always bring happiness and in some cases has destroyed people’s lives.”

‘Lucky Sods’ runs from Thursday May 19 to Saturday May 21. Tickets are available from the Centre’s ticket office in advance or on the door.
