A new play about Lancashire, by its people, is to tour the county this spring.
Lancastrians features the real words of the 500 people interviewed by Chorley-based Junction 8 Theatre. Their stories and thoughts about Lancashire life will be told by three actors, including Lancaster-based Roberta Kerr, playing a multitude of characters.
From the familiar to the extraordinary, Lancastrians will create a snapshot of everyday life in the county.
It will premiere at Chorley Town Hall from 16th to 20th April, before touring to Burnley Library (22nd – 24th April), Plungington Community in Preston (26th – 28th April), The Dukes in Lancaster (1st – 4th May), Stanley Park Visitors Centre in Blackpool (6th – 8th May), and The Artz Centre in Skelmersdale (9th – 11th May). Each of these towns and cities will feature in the play.
As the audience arrive at each venue, they will be able to purchase some local food and drink and be invited to add their own photographs, written memories and opinions about Lancashire to the set.
The play’s creators Liz and Nick Stevenson, are very proud of their Lancashire roots and produce shows inspired by and reflecting local communities. They like to bring professional theatre to non-traditional spaces.
