Cumbria is an excellent holiday destination, but gorgeous vistas and bountiful options for a pub lunch do not necessarily make an ideal permanent home. Hannah Sowerby has condensed her woes based on personal experience into a one-woman comedy play, 10 Things To Do In A Small Cumbrian Town, which heads to Newcastle’s Alphabetti from Tuesday 23rd November to Saturday 11th December, to show the realities of living in the countryside.

Not everyone can afford to live in a luxury mansion overlooking Derwentwater, and working a 9-5 doesn’t leave a lot of time and energy to run up mountain sides on the reg. So what exactly is there to do for a young lass? Penrith native Jodie has scrambled together an educational list for anyone who has dreamt of getting a place in the country – and it isn’t all Wainwright walks and overpriced row boats. Join Jodie as she recounts the realities of living above a kebab shop, stacking shelves and a complete lack of anonymity everywhere she goes, to scrape together her list of top things to do for entertainment in a place where fibre optic broadband might as well be the USS Enterprise. It’s a far cry from the idyllic experience than the telly would have you believe, and it might just make you appreciate city life a smidge more than you currently do.

10 Things To Do In A Small Cumbrian Town is at Alphabetti Theatre, Newcastle from Tuesday 23rd November-Saturday 11th December
