Fun tales of factory life told at theatre


A tale of a team of ladies working at a crisp factory ‘up north’ promises laughs aplenty when it comes to Blackfriars on Friday night.

Miss Crispy 1988, produced by Less is More Productions, will be performed at the Spain Lane venue from 7.30pm.

It tells the story of Sarah, Denise and everyone on ‘Line Two’ of a factory producing cheese and onion crisps, and how they want something exciting to happen, something that will come along and help them stand out from the crowd.

Inspired by a series of interviews with women from Teeside, Miss Crispy 1988 tells the story of a beauty pageant with a difference.

Set in the north of England at the end of 1987 and start of 1988, the show follows five unique ladies with even more unique situations.

Sarah is all about family, Betty is all about the union, Denise is all about the trends, Anne is all about her baby and Pam? Well Pam would just love to have a regular bowel movement.

The produces promise a ‘warm, moving and often funny’ play that ‘pays homage to the women of Middlesbrough and shows just what depths of love and compassion they are capable of... especially in the face of adversity’.

The show is for over 16s only as it contains some mild language but organisers say the material is not offensive...unless you have a problem with laughing!

Tickets are available at £12.00 and £10.00.

To book call Blackfriars Box Office on 01205 363108.
