A new play celebrating the solid soul days and nights of Wigan casino is coming to Dublin. Joe Jackson hears from the director Paul Sadot.
here’s something deeply inspiring about talking to a guy who went to Wigan’s legendary Casino roughly quarter of a century ago to escape the uncertainties of his job as an engineer in Thatcherite Britain and realise who is now directing a play with music that celebrates those days. Director, producer, actor, choreographer and DJ, Paul Sadot is that guy, and the play he’s bringing to Dublin’s Helix Theatre is called Once Upon A Time In Wigan. With a title like that one half expects Sergio Leone to be providing the soundtrack!
Once Upon A Time In Wigan opens at the Helix on February 4
