Confessions from Canada

A one-woman play from Canada will cross the pond for performances in two of Lancashire’s rural venues in May.

“Confessions of a Redheaded Coffeeshop Girl”, written and performed by Rebecca Perry will travel to Rawtenstall and Hoghton. The show will be performed in Rawtenstall Library on Thursday 26 May at 7.30pm, followed by a performance at St. Joseph’s Parish Hall in Hoghton on Friday 27 May at 7pm.

Tickets for the show, which is suitable for ages 14 and above, are available directly from the venues.

Meet Joanie Little: feisty redhead, recent anthropology graduate, ready to take on the world! But… she’s stuck working as a barista.

Determined to use her vocational skills, Joanie turns her local cafe upside down, reporting on the “creatures” (customers) as if she were Jane Goodall herself, bushwhacking through the jungle to study chimpanzees! In her very own “Coffee Shop Jungle”, hilarity ensues, with jazzy tunes, co-worker showdowns, and… maybe even a little bit of romance!

Speaking ahead of the tour, Perry said:

“The show is meant to be an inspirational message showing that anything is possible in the ever-changing job market of today. I am delighted that the show is growing so far beyond what I had originally imagined, and that it is now getting its professional début in the UK thanks to Spot On Lancashire and Cheshire Rural Touring Arts. Join me for jazzy tunes, co-worker showdowns, life lessons, and maybe even a little bit of romance, all in under an hour!”

The Lancashire dates form part of Spot On Lancashire’s spring season of touring, taking professional arts events to rural venues and libraries across the county.
