Event Details

Experience a new play performed on Chorley Covered Market at 8pm every evening from Wednesday 11 October until Saturday 21 October. Under The Market Roof by Becky Prestwich (Chip Shop Chips, Doctors, Holby City) is inspired by a series of interviews taken with those who work and shop on Chorley Market. Under the Market Roof is a warm, funny, thought-provoking play about community, family, ambition and the connection we have to the place we live. Grab a barm, a pint or a brew and join Junction 8 Theatre for a unique theatrical experience full of Chorley spirit!

Ever since she was a child, Lisa has spent her Saturdays working on her Granddad Len’s hardware stall. Everyone knows old Len, the man who turned up on Chorley Market as a lad with nothing but a couple of suitcases of stock and made a life out of it. But Len hasn’t seemed himself lately, and Lisa starts to wonder if the ‘L. Shaw’ sign above the cabin could be ‘L’ for Lisa. She loves the market and the people at the heart of it, but is her Mum right when she says there’s no future in the market?

Tickets are £10 and are available from Malcolm’s Musicland, Chapel Street, Chorley, tel 01257 264362 or online at www.junction8theatre.co.uk. Food and drink will be available to purchase on the market from 7pm each evening. Please note there is no Sunday performance.
