The Octagon in Bolton plans to open its doors for its Warm Up season later this month.

See You at the Octagon comes to the stage from May 26 to June 15. Bolton-based actor, writer and theatre maker Pegeen Murphy stars in a specially commissioned monologue.

Pegeen has a string of theatre credits to her name and is no stranger to the Octagon stage, previously appearing in Cartwright Cabaret in 2018. She was also the recipient of one of the Octagon’s Artist Incubation residencies earlier this year, which provided three local theatre artists with rehearsal space, bursaries and support from the artistic team to develop new work.

See You at the Octagon is a new one-act play by local stage and screen writer Becky Prestwich, directed by the Octagon’s artistic director Lotte Wakeham.
