The Golden Pathway Annual is a brilliantly funny, touching, nostalgic and often Pythonesque look at the Baby Boom austerity years of the 1950s and the swinging 60s. A series of
loosely connected fast-moving sketches whisk us through the life of Michael Peters from the age of 2 to 23. Michael is given The Golden Pathway Annual on his 5th birthday and its
fictional characters erupt into his real life as he grows up through the Coronation, Grammar School, adolescent awakenings, alienation from his parents, tries to find a job and
encounters a large chicken!
The show is a spectacular trip down Memory Lane for those who were there and a glimpse into another world for those who weren’t, all wrapped up with lots of comedy and touches
of pathos. But it’s more than that: every scene is brilliantly written, the majority hilarious, the rest genuinely moving. ‘The Golden Pathway Annual has things to say, says them well, looks you in the eye.’
