From snowy skies and meat pies, to brass bands and strange lands, writer and performer Emmanuel Bajiiji uses physical theatre, comedy and storytelling to reflect on life in his new town, in a new country, on a new continent.
A love letter to Oldham, packaged in a funny, heart-warming one-man show.
“Could candy floss fall from the sky in Oldham? Yes. And what a beautiful sight it was!”
