Mikron in two shows, at three different venues; Theatre.
MARSDEN-BASED Mikron Theatre is bringing two of its productions to three very different venues next week.
The company tours for most of the year on board a vintage narrowboat and stages shows in places that other theatre companies wouldn't think of doing - and this one is no different.
The two plays are called One Of Each and Raising Agents.
One Of Each is about Sir Caspian Delamere - a man on a mission to find the finest fish and chips in Britain. He's narrowed it down to two seaside vendors - finalists for his Golden Fish Fork award.
By coincidence The Pickled Egg and The Silver Darling are rival establishments run by twins Roderick and Annette Whale. Unable to agree on the best way to cook this iconic dish, they went their separate ways years ago and now they find their food and their philosophies in direct competition.
Raising Agents is set around Bunnington WI, a branch that is a bit down-at-heel. Dwindling membership means they can barely afford the hall, let alone a decent speaker. So when a PR guru becomes a member the women are glad of new blood.
Raising Agents will be at the Golcar Lily pub at Bolster Moor at 8pm on Tuesday, September 22. Tickets cost PS25 and include a two course meal served from 6pm. Reservations must be made in advance.
It will also be on Saturday, September 26 at the Tolson Museum at 1pm and again there is no need to book as a cash collection will again be taken after the show which is outdoors and people can bring their own chairs, picnics and blankets.
And on Thursday, September 24 at 8pm a production of One of Each moves to The New Inn on Manchester Road in Marsden. There is no need to book as a cash collection will be taken after the show which is indoors.
