Outdoor Theatre: ‘Bad Dad’ 

Heartbreak is delighted to bring open air theatre to Milford in Staffordshire this summer.

Outdoor Theatre: ‘Bad Dad’ 

Gather round and give three cheers for Reverend Judith. She is receiving the Citizen of the Year Award for her amazing work with the food bank. Come congratulate her and hear how it all started with Frank and his dad, Gilbert. Gilbert is a bit of a local celebrity. He was no other than the legendary ‘king of the track’, Gilbert the Great. That was until a tragic accident put a stop to his track-racing days. Driven to desperate measures in order to provide for his son, he agrees to become a get-away driver for the local baddies. 

Join Heartbreak Productions for this warm-hearted tale that follows the highs and lows of a father-son relationship. An open-air adaptation of David Walliams Bad Dad is the perfect summer family entertainment. So, pack your picnics, grab your wet weather gear or sun-cream (or both), something to sit on, and join Frank and Gilbert as they navigate their way through car chases and convicts in the struggle to escape the clutches of the local crime lord and clear Gilbert’s name. 

We have entertained audiences for over 30 years with outdoor Shakespeare, classics, and family shows. So come and see us for a captivating open-air performance of Bad Dad. Pack a picnic, dress for the weather, and head to Milford in Staffordshire for a unique outdoor theatre experience.

Gates open 30 minutes before the performance. When you arrive at the venue, parking is available in the main carpark. You will find the performance area in the Walled Garden and the loos, including a changing places toilet and baby changing facilities are located by the plant centre. Refreshments are available to purchase onsite, but picnics are welcome.

Remember to bring your own seating, either low backed chairs or rugs, and dress for the weather. This venue is wheelchair accessible. To learn more about the Shugborough Estate you can visit their website.
