A Parson’s Tale returns to Bolton

Written by NewLiveTheatre on . Posted in Latest News, Shows

160x600_AparsonsTaleThis week one-man play A Parson’s Tale is set to return to Bolton, this time in the village of Little Lever!

Set in 1895 England, A Parson’s Tale takes it’s audience on an enthralling journey into the past, highlighting how society has changed since the late Victorian era in many, often comedic, ways. Audience members are invited to come join Reverend Smith and his church warden Mrs Fletcher as they celebrate the rebuilding of the Old Bell Tower in the village of Norton… or so this is supposed to be the plan. Guests are expected and throughout the evening you’re in for a treat of musical spontaneity from the Parson as things don’t quite go to plan. We hear there will also be jammy biscuits… it may just be a rumour, though?

Come join us for a night of celebration in Bolton!

Thursday’s show at Christ Church Hall, Little Lever, Bolton, will be a special acapella performance!

After Thursday, the next show of the tour will be in Waterfoot, Rossendale in April at the New Millennium Theatre.
