Early Doors returns to The Lowry for limited summer run

The Grapes Pub is reopening its doors for a limited season in a not-to-be-missed night of fun and laughter.

Early Doors Live is returning to The Lowry for a limited run in the summer following its sold-out run last year.

Regular writers Craig Cash and Phil Mealey were commissioned by top West End producer Philip McIntyre to adapt their award-winning TV series for the stage.

The show premiered at The Lowry in August last year featuring the same hilarious characters in a brand new story before moving on to the Manchester Arena for an extra performance.

The show received critical acclaim and was awarded the prize for best theatre show at the CityLife Awards 2019.

Ken’s got love on his mind, but will barmaid, Tanya, ring the landlord’s bell? Old Tommy would play Cupid – if only he didn’t have IBS (Irritable Bugger’s Syndrome).

Crime is on the rise but fear not, as local cops Phil and Nige are getting stuck in – to a couple of pints in the back room. After all, “Crime can’t crack itself.”

All of this and much, much more when Early Doors returns to The Lowry.

Tickets are on sale now to members of The Lowry and go on general sale on Friday 1st February at 10am.

Early Doors Live is at The Lowry from Wednesday 24th July – Saturday 3rd August 2019
