We’re delighted to announce that the last show of our 2018/2019 season will be ‘Once Upon A Time In Wigan’ including a genuine Northern Soul disco after the Friday and Saturday night performances.
The play is set against the backdrop of the weekly ‘all-nighter’ Northern Soul nights at Wigan Casino between 1973 and 1981 and tells the story of four young characters: Eugene, Danny, Maxine and Suzanne. Together they all come of age in the changing face of social, political and cultural 1970’s Britain, challenging themselves against the monotony of the everyday versus the mad Wigan weekend. Brought together with the unique Northern Soul Soundtrack, the audience will be immersed into a world which, once experienced, was never forgotten.
23rd-25th May 2019 at George Lawton Hall, Mossley.
