This is a love letter.
To Martin’s egg custards and penny chews. To Cresta Cars and the 50p shop. To posh coffees and karak chai and first walkmans and last orders and stuffed vine leaves and drag queen karaoke and red patent shoes and Christmas trees and missing the bus and walking home and leaving home and coming back because actually, this will always be home really.
This is a love letter to Cheetham Hill.
This show has been developed with members of the Cheetham Hill and Crumpsall community. The cast will be made up of non-professional members of the M8 community as well as professional actors.
