Love N Stuff at Oldham Coliseum, Manchester, 16 September–2 October 2021, from £7 - Book now

This summer the teams at the Oldham Coliseum will make a welcomed return to the rehearsal room to make a start on the theatre’s first home-produced show since early 2020. Written by Tanika Gupta, Love N Stuff is a laugh-out-loud comedy about love, marriage and the family you choose.

A laugh-out-loud comedy about love, marriage and the family you choose.

Bindi and Mansoor have been happily married for years and have built a great life for themselves in the UK. However, something’s not right and Mansoor has decided to move back to India having left only a parting note for his wife. The play opens as Mansoor is waiting in the departure lounge at the airport for his flight back to India.

However, when Bindi turns up at the airport clutching his farewell letter, Mansoor’s departure isn’t going to be easy. Bindi has hatched a plan to get him to stay and half the neighbourhood are involved too.

Love N Stuff is written for two actors who each play a variety of roles. With over 15 characters including a hippy, Scottish policewoman and a street-smart teenager, the play is humorous, lively and challenging.

Oldham Coliseum has just recently announced its first full season since the pandemic too. As we expected, it’s a really exciting programme – with comedy, music and dance alongside thought-provoking drama – we’re really looking forward to the multi-award-winning Blue/Orange, directed by the Coliseum’s Chris Lawson. The theatre has also announced that the theatre’s much-loved annual pantomime will return for 2021 too.

A thoughtful, heartwarming and funny show to welcome audiences back to the Coliseum.

Running at just 80 minutes long, Love N Stuff is a thoughtful, heartwarming and funny show to welcome audiences back to the Coliseum. See it at Oldham before it heads out on a national tour.
