Grimsby Central Hall Trust and Box of Tricks Theatre Company presents in the Roy Kemp Hall


A New Play by Becky Prestwich

“Heart-warming tale with a serving of Northern sole and chips”

Manchester theatre company Box of Tricks bring their acclaimed

2016 production of Becky Prestwich’s funny and nostalgic tale of love over fish and chips with a side order of some Northern soul – Chip Shop Chips – to the Grimsby Central Hall.

Tuck into a fish supper and brace yourself for a unique theatrical experience: dinner, quiz and a show all rolled into one!

“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, Chip Shop Chips heads nationwide following a completely sold-out Northern Tour in Spring 2016. Performing in unusual spaces across the country 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!

The production is directed by Box of Tricks’ Joint Artistic Director and co-founder Adam Quayle (Plastic Figurines, Box of Tricks) and will feature in the cast Josh Moran (Gunpowder and Peter Kay’s Car Share and Northern Broadsides), Julie Edwards (Brief Encounters at Bradford Interchange, Freedom Studios), Mark Newsome (Paines Plough and Not Too Tame) and Jessica Forrest (Hollyoaks and Coronation Street).

Tickets for Chip Shop Chips are priced at £15(including a Fish & Chips supper!)
