Chicken Soup From09/02

"Well, no point moping round is there?"

1984. Five days after Orgreave. Three women keep a struggling mining community standing, running a soup kitchen near the pit heads of Rotherham.

2016. The day of the Brexit vote. The breadline is no further away and the soup kitchen is now a food bank, as the country faces a huge decision.

A witty, poignant new play from local writer Ray Castleton and Kieran Knowles (Operation Crucible), Chicken Soup celebrates the friendships that survive the hardest of times.

Chicken Soup will be performed on the Crucible Studio stage. Come back soon to read our Emma's review.
