CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned general re-opening time. Some venues are showing on-line productions or outside productions - even a few covid safe internal ones and a number of tours and shows have been rescheduled for later in 2020 and throughout 2021. A few pantomimes may be possible but we await a relaxing of the rules for theatres from the Government.
Two brothers. One girl. A lot of ice cream. When Guiseppe Raffa decides to retire from the ice cream business, only one son can take over. Lino and Rocco must split the business for a year and compete against each other to sell the most ice cream. The competition begins, but itâs not long before tactics get dirty. Rocco is up to something with the garden wall. His wife, Bernie, is sick of waiting at home for the children that may never arrive. Lino is in love with Lulu, even though she says that sheâll break his heart. And Lulu? She has bigger ideas. Sheâs in love with ice cream and will let nothing stop her from reaching her goal. When Lino starts to lose the competition, she helps Rocco invent a very special ice cream that the people of Manchester canât stop craving. Will Manchester get their âfixâ? Performers Peter Polycarpou, Lucy Gaskell, Sarah Ball, Craig Cheetham, Al Weaver.
