Whilst 99% of our coverage is in London, that doesn’t mean there isn’t theatre outside of the capital. Manchester is a perfect example, we are certainly seeing more and more happening up in the North West. We even have a couple of reviewers lurking and we’re always looking for more (if you’re interested do get in touch, more info here).
So, our latest competition is the opportunity to win a pair of tickets to see Alphamum Productions‘ Little Boxes when it plays at Manchester’s 53two in November (prize can be for either 16 or 17 November). There are four ways to enter, and we’ll count each one as a seperate entry, so you can quadruple your chances.
- Email us at email@example.com with “Great things come in little boxes” in the subject line.
- Share our pinned Facebook post and comment below the original post “Great things come in #littleboxes”.

Do you spot the trend in all the ways to enter? Entries must be made by 7pm on 29 October 2021.
Terms and conditions for the competition can be found below.
If you aren’t successful in the competition, you can still buy tickets to see this show via the below link.
After a successful run at VAULT Festival 2020, with sell out shows, multiple 4- and 5- star reviews and an “Offie” Short Run Commendation, Little Boxes is coming to Manchester.
“… ticks all the right boxes” London Pub Theatres ★★★★
Little Boxes follows Joann Condon (Little Britain, Dad’s Army the Lost Episodes), as she explores the boxes she has “found herself in” throughout her life: The hopes and dreams of a child, the frustrations of an acting career, the tensions of being a parent, the grief in losing loved ones, the fear of being…herself.
“Condon promises we will laugh and cry … and laugh and cry we did” Phoenix Remix
Described as “funny, touching and at times heartbreaking,” by London Pub Theatres, Joann uses personal anecdotes to highlight assumptions and judgements made about her based-on looks, age, gender and background. This phenomenon of classifying people is called ‘social categorization’ by psychologists, and most of us can relate to these experiences.

“It’s natural for people in our lives to want to force us into nice little boxes,” says Condon, “but the scary thing is, you often end up putting yourself in that same box.”
We want to use these performances in Manchester to launch a tour in 2022 and look forward to bringing Little Boxes to a broader audience.
To make the performance more accessible we will be having a BSL interpreted performance on Wednesday 17th November at 7:30pm and we also have 2 tickets at £2 for each performance for unemployed or low income audience members.
