Ever since she was a child, Lisa has spent her Saturdays working on her Granddad Len’s hardware stall. Old Len turned up on Chorley Market as a lad with nothing but a couple of suitcases of stock and he’s been here ever since. But Len hasn’t seemed himself lately. His granddaughter Lisa starts to wonder if the ‘L. Shaw’ sign above the cabin could one day be ‘L’ for Lisa. She loves the market and the people at the heart of it, but is her Mum right when she says there’s no future in the market?

This new play by Becky Prestwich (CHIP SHOP CHIPS, DOCTORS, HOLBY CITY) is inspired by a series of interviews taken with those who work and shop on Chorley Market. UNDER THE MARKET ROOF is a warm, funny, thought-provoking play about community, family, ambition and the connection we have to the place we live. Grab a barm, a pint or a brew and join us for a unique theatrical experience full of Chorley spirit!
