Reliably informed

Stories of kindness and solidarity saw us through the darkest moments of a global crisis, and as theatre doors reopen, the CaroleW production of Haddock & Chips delivers a much-needed dose of humour and hope.

Embarking on a tour of the North East, Janet Plater’s play is a moving exploration of human kindness and irrepressible community spirit. A snapshot of British seaside life, the action takes place in Frankie’s, a Whitley Bay chippy. As news breaks of a missing girl, the community must work together to find her.

A poignant tale of enduring hope, the production is accompanied by an original soundtrack by Bridie Jackson, and dance scenes by Lee Proud.

Despite the unfolding drama, director Jake Murray believes it’s a story of optimism: ‘’The play has a big heart, a shrewd eye for human character and a real community spirit.’’

The tour will showcase artwork by Newcastle-based Michael Davies based on the play’s themes, and theatregoers will take home a limited edition salted chocolate from Gosforth’s North Chocolates.

Haddock & Chips offers a heart-warming night of theatre and a reminder of the power of hope.
