What if your imaginary friend never left?

 

It’s 1997. While the rest of the village is in a frenzy and the country is gripped by New Labour/ Diana/ Teletubbies fever, our unlikely hero is spending her summer trapped behind the counter in Keith’s Country Stores. As she retreats into her imagination, creativity and the absurd collide in a tiny corner of a pre-mobile-phone-world.

 

A nostalgia trip of a comedy, featuring pink shrimps and nineties hits.

If you’ve ever felt stuck, had a very best friend or lived in the middle of nowhere, this one is for you.

Unit 5 Queens Square Clevedon BS21 6HX

Theatre Shop is in the pedestrianised square behind B&M Bargains, tucked between Superdrug and Boots.

We recommend parking in B&M Bargains car park and  walking across Queens Square where you'll find Theatre Shop.

 

Theatre Orchard and Living Spit met in 2012. Their eyes locked across a crowded room and they decided to get together and turn an empty shop into a theatre.

They named their bundle of joy “Theatre Shop”. It’s 5 years old this year and is now run by The Theatre Shop CIC, a brand new not-for-profit company.
