Welcome to Shangri-La

Cheryl’s life is anything but ordinary – living in a run-down seaside B & B (that also doubles as a swinger’s club) alongside a gambling man, a fortune teller and an elderly deviant, she would give anything for a bit of boring.

But you should be careful what you wish for.

When George turns up late one night looking for his missing wife, he brings with him a cash-filled wallet and the promise of a normal life. But this promise comes with a price – the very soul of Shangri-La and its inhabitants.

Written by BAFTA Break-through Brit Gemma Langford, Welcome to Shangri-La is a dark comedy that challenges its audience to look at their own definition of “normality” and to ask themselves “am I alright?”

Broken Biscuits are a new theatre company in Manchester championing working class voices.
