‘15 Minutes of Fame’ comes o Clitheroe pub

REGULARS at Clitheroe’s The New Inn will be treated to a touch of theatre next month when Bootleg Theatre comes to town.

Salisbury-based Bootleg has been presenting new writing plays in pubs, clubs, studios and theatres for more than 20 years, and although The New Inn regularly hosts folk evening, this will be the first time it has been a theatre venue.

Entitled “15 Minutes of Fame”, the hour-long performance will be presented by three actors.

It will consist of four new writing monologues – “Dressing Up” by Alison Barclay, “The Miracle Worker” by Tony Benge, “The Last Night Party” by Rosie Finnegan and “What’s Malcolm Ever Done” by Mark Bromley.

Described as “fun”, “accessible” and “thought-provoking”, the performance will be held on Wednesday, September 14th, at 8 p.m.

The company, whose artistic director is Colin Burden, receives no public subsidy so has to make a modest charge of £5 a ticket.

To reserve a seat phone Les at the New Inn on 01200 443653. Seats are limited to just 40.
