About Blackpool - What a SH*T Place To Die

An award-winning, one-man show, which has toured extensively in the UK and has been featured on the BBC, ITV and in the Manchester Evening News.

The dark comedy is inspired by real events in the life of Oldham actor Mark Newsome and is written by Manchester-based writer Phil Pearson.

The one-hour play tells the story of Billy, a gay, autistic, out-of-work actor, who has a drink and drug problem.

After being outed in the fruit and veg aisle of his local ALDI and a life-shattering row with his family, Billy embarks on a lost weekend in Blackpool, where he will literally sink or swim.

A really heart-warming story that will make you laugh and cry, Blackpool, What A Sh*t Place has enjoyed sold-out shows wherever it is performed.
