Lancashire People’s Theatre is coming to The Stanley Arms on Tuesday
(29 October) at 8pm with the new show, Boy’s Not Right.


The Preston-based theatre company was created earlier this year by Neil Procter and Anthea Carpenter-Procter.

Neil and Anthea have worked alongside writer Susan Moffat to create this piece, which tells the story of Joe, a middle-aged man at rock bottom, who is considering committing suicide.

Performers include Neil, Anthea and Orla Cottingham.

Tuesday’s performance of Boy’s Not Right is part of an ambitious plan for the theatre group to develop and prove Preston has a passion for theatre and new writing.

The production is free but the company asks the audience to contribute to a Pay What You Decide donation at the end of the show.

Money raised from this will be used as part of Lancashire People’s Theatre’s match funding for an Arts Council England development grant application.

Garry Cook is putting on the event through his Enjoy the Show performance promotion company.

He said: “I’m delighted to be able to program the show after a very busy autumn season for Enjoy the Show.

“Supporting and developing new work was a hugely important part of Lancashire Fringe Festival and I’m hoping to continue to support local creativity through events like this.”

The show will be followed by a session of forum theatre, allowing audience members to contribute to the show’s development.
