‘Meat Pie, Sausage Roll’ runs at Oldham Coliseum from Friday 3 – Saturday 25 March 2017.

It’s 1990, and Oldham Athletic are flying high following the best cup-run in the club’s history.

All eyes are on Latics as they fight for promotion in the league, but for bride-to-be, Amanda (Mandi), the football is causing even more drama off the pitch.

Amanda’s dad is a simple man and there are only three things Mick really cares about in this world – his family, his mates and the mighty Latics.

When Amanda and her fiancé, Asif, book their wedding for the last day of the season everything starts to go wrong. Mick finds his loyalties torn, and on top of that, Asif hates football!

Can Mick keep his eye on the ball long enough to walk his daughter down the aisle?

Featuring original compositions inspired by Oldham Athletic football chants, Meat Pie, Sausage Roll evokes memories of Oldham Athletic’s greatest moments, portraying the passion of the fans, community spirit and the coming together of families.

‘Meat Pie, Sausage Roll’ runs at Oldham Coliseum Theatre from Friday 3 – Saturday 25 March 2017. Tickets can be booked by calling the Box Office on 0161 624 2829 or online at: www.coliseum.org.uk
