Another northern soul play with a familiar title is premiering at Bolton’s Octagon Theatre – Once Upon A Time In Wigan – Live!

Not to be confused with the one doing the rounds a couple of years back, it’s a nostalgia tale, with one regular (Eugene) looking back from the club’s final night to is first night – and the drugs, sex, love and classic 60s and 70s American soul music he has since encountered.

Written by Mick Martin and directed by Mark Babych, the show also features a live band of actor musicians playing northern classics throughout. It runs from Thursday 5th June to Saturday 28th June 2008, with ticket prices starting at £8.50.
