CANCELLED: Paines Plough and Oldham Coliseum Theatre in association
with York Theatre Royal present "Roundabout"
Paines Plough's Roundabout is the world's first pop-up, plug and play theatre. It flat packs into a lorry and pops up all over the country.
In 2020 it's coming to Oldham, pitching up outside the Queen Elizabeth Hall. The Coliseum has teamed up with Paines Plough to bring four brand new plays by world-class writers to your doorstep this summer; Really Big and Really Loud, Black Love, Hungry and The Inconvenience Store.
The Inconvenience Store
Thursday 16 - Saturday 18 July, 6.15pm
The Inconvenience Store is a new 30-minute short play by Charlotte Keatley, writer of My Mother Said I Never Should - the most widely produced play ever written by a woman.
How many versions of yourself are you wearing today? Just those three? Do they really fit you? Bee doesn't fit hers. So she's opened a shop, where the changing room actually does change you. The Inconvenience Store offers what is needed by those who aren't Mr Normal- whoever he is.
Age guidance 14+
Run time 30mins
