A new play by Becky Prestwich

‘She’s not going anywhere yet. Even if it’s just for tonight – he won’t unwish it. They can have now. And then years after, they’ll still get a shiver from the memories.’

It’s the grand reopening of Booth and Son’s Fish & Chip Shop. Eric has returned home, over forty years after he left, and it’s time for a fresh start. But old flame Christine has other ideas. Transported back to a time of chippy teas and Northern Soul, there’s unfinished business for these old lovers. But watching teenage love stumble as hapless Lee makes a pass at the beautiful Jasmine, looks just like history repeating.

Focusing on love at different ages and celebrating the nation’s favourite food, Chip Shop Chips is an immersive love story set in a chippy performing in unusual spaces across the North. So put on your dancing shoes, tuck into a fish supper and brace yourself for a unique theatrical experience. This is theatre, but not as you know it: dinner, dance and a show all rolled into one!

Please note this is an unreserved seated event. You will be able to choose your seats on arrival at the venue.

The show on 16 March is at Ramsbottom Civic Hall and the shows on 15 and 17 March are at Delicious Cafe in the Fusiliers Museum Bury
