English treat at Little Theatre
AUDIENCES at Bolton Little Theatre’s next production will be able to enjoy a traditional English treat... and we don’t just mean the play.
The theatre will be bringing back their Sunday afternoon matinees during the run of J.B.Priestley’s Dangerous Corner, and will also be serving English tea and scones during the interval at these shows.
“Some of our audience find it difficult to get out in the dark nights, especially when there is snow and ice around. We thought they might be interested in an afternoon performance so we have decided to bring back matinees,” said director Andrew Close.
“We chose Sunday afternoon as it is a time when there is free parking in the area and it is not as busy as Saturdays.
“We are doing these extra matinee performances at the moment only for plays that are in our small Forge theatre to see if this is something audiences want.”
Dangerous Corner explores how a small event can have devastating consequences. It is one of Priestley’s “time” plays, which has an unexpected twist.
The play will run from February 5 to 12 at the Hanover Street theatre. Tickets cost £9 and are available from the Albert Halls Box Office on 01204 334400 or through boltonlittletheatre.co.uk.
