Created by Joe Gilmour, Local Exchange Ambassadors & Community Company from Leigh, Atherton and Tyldesley in partnership with the Royal Exchange Theatre.
Best Ever Place Ever – Charley has the perfect life in Leigh – family nearby, life-long friends, and his dream job – driving the V1 bus! But when his little sister Alex comes back buzzing from an Edinburgh University open day, he starts to realise things might change – will she leave her friends, her family, her local area? Charley rushes to organise his own open day for Leigh, Atherton and Tyldesley to prove to his sister that she should stay!
Created in weekly sessions by local residents of Leigh, Atherton and Tyldesley, this thirty minute new play combined a whistlestop tour of all the best local spots, with a moving coming-of-age story.
These sketches illustrate the ideas and decisions that went into turning the Community Room at Leigh Spinners Mill into a performance space with limited time and budget.
