“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!
Production supported by The Edge, Manchester
“Genuinely heartbreaking... Chip Shop Chips is an all-round feel-good immersive production, performed in spaces you might never visit otherwise, all across the North. Go with friends, lots of friends, have a laugh, a chippy tea (yep, they bus in fish and chips so you can munch and watch) and a night to remember.”★★★★ Reviews Hub
“Box of Tricks have really challenged themselves and produced an immersive show with a lot of heart... Chip Shop Chips is a fabulous show for everyone – those who are new to theatre and those seasoned theatre goers. It’s a superb evening and a joyous trip down memory lane, celebrating love through the ages and the nation's favourite food.”★★★★ Upstaged Manchester
