Blackpool What A Sh*t Place To Die is on a short regional tour after debuting in Manchester.

Meet Billy Costello, a young, gay, depressed, autistic actor with a drink and drug problem. He goes on a bender and jumps on the first train out of town—to Blackpool. In a heartwarming and heartbreaking lost weekend, friendship and love come calling to remind him of who he is and can be again.

It’s at Lancaster’s Gregson Centre, April 17; Bootleg Social, Blackpool April 18; Ulverston’s Laurel & Hardy Museum, April 25 and Huddersfield’s Small Seeds, May 1.
