‘Louis Turner and Madeline Hatt write and star as twins; Chris and Chriss, whose father owns the world famous fish and chip shop; FRYDAYS. That was until he died one year ago. Since then Chris and Chriss have dealt with this in a rather unusual way, by locking themselves inside a freezer and refusing to engage with the outside world. Inside the freezer they play games and act out stories to entertain themselves. On their surreal and imaginary adventures they meet an array of bizarre characters including psychic Scouser Crystal, the legendary Friar of Fysh and the evil Fryer’s Union (F.U.). However it always goes back to one thing, saving the fish and chip shop! Wacky, wonderful and weird, FRYDAYS is an absurd musical comedy about family, fears and fish and chips. Always with a song to help things along, FRYDAYS will have your bodies bopping and the laughs never stopping.’
