By Becky Prestwich
Directed by Lotte Wakeham

A wonderfully heartfelt, funny and moving new one-act play by local stage and screen writer Becky Prestwich (One Night in Bolton, Holby City, Doctors).

This specially commissioned monologue is a story about the people and the town of Bolton, inspired by the responses we received to the Octagon’s Eight Questions questionnaire. The play draws on the memories that many of you shared with us about your experiences of the past year and your hopes for the future.

See You at the Octagon captures the laughs, friendships and overwhelming community spirit that has touched people’s lives and celebrates audiences coming together to experience live theatre.
