Chip Shop Chips: Reviews Round-up 20/02/2016

“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 nations favourite food.”
★★★★ Upstaged Manchester

“Becky Prestwich’s warm-hearted script offers more fishy puns than you can throw a crab stick at… Although it’s essentially a modest tale, it’s inventively realised by Box of Tricks and its four-strong cast… A first-hand experience of the power and pleasure of theatre, Chip Shop Chips is certainly worth its salt. And vinegar.”
★★★ Liverpool Echo

“Like many great plays, Chip Shop Chips truly shines in the writing… The story is simple but effective, with its themes of tradition, family, love and nostalgia shining through both in the script, but also in the acting… Chip Shop Chips is a funny and warm-hearted play which will leave you with a full belly and a smile on your face.”
★★★★ Frankly My Dear

“Director Adam Quayle does not accept compromise – Chip Shop Chips is a full theatrical experience… An excellent cast… One of the objectives of staging plays in unusual venues is to attract audiences who would not normally go to the theatre, and the wide appeal of Chip Shop Chips just might do the trick.”
Manchester Theatre Awards

“It’s very difficult not to be charmed by a play where the audience take their seats at tables bedecked in red checked tablecloths and are immediately served fish and chips to a soundtrack of Northern Soul… This is a production full of heart.”
★★★ The Stage

“Chip Shop Chips is a successful show. Of those I share a table with, two couples “wouldn’t normally go to this kind of thing”… Heading out to the car park, my dining companions are happily chatting about how “wonderful” the evening has been. All told, Chip Shop Chips is comforting fare… Come along; be well fed and well-entertained.”
British Theatre Guide

“This play is a bit out of the ordinary… Quirky and entertaining… A worthwhile watch.”
