Autumn 2018

Venue details

Chip Shop Chips

Box of Tricks Theatre

“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. Watching teenage love stumble as hapless Lee makes a pass at the beautiful Jasmine, is it all just history repeating?

Focusing on love at different ages and celebrating the nation’s favourite food, brace yourself for an immersive love story set to a soundtrack of Northern Soul and served with a fish and chip supper. This is theatre, but not as you know it: dinner, quiz and a show all rolled into one!

As part of the Chip Shop Chips tour, the company are trying to raise funds to allow the show to be as open and accessible as possible. With this in mind they are asking people to pay it forward and ‘chip in’ to allow people who wouldn’t normally attend the theatre a chance to engage with top quality new show on their doorsteps.
Sometimes the cost of a show can be a financial barrier so we’re crowdfunding to offer free tickets, engagement activities and relaxed performances across the tour. Help us engage with hard to reach audiences including older people, people living with dementia, and people who are at risk of homelessness.
