And Did Those Feet comes to the University of Bolton Stadium

The Octagon Theatre turns back the clock to the Trotters’ finest hour with And Did Those Feet a play about the Wanderers, written by Wanderers fans performed at their home ground.

Former Artistic Director David Thacker returns to the Octagon to bring back Bolton’s most famous football story to the Lion of Vienna Suite, the University of Bolton Stadium 21 October – 1 November.

Written by writers from Bolton and life-long Wanderers fans Les Smith (Early One Morning) and Martin Thomasson directed by Mark Babych in 2007 (where it won Best New Play at Manchester Theatre Awards) and 2010. 

Following the lives of two families in the build up to the most unmissable football game in Bolton history: the 1923 FA Cup Final, Bolton Wanderers V Wes Ham United - the first game to be held at the newly built Wembley Stadium.

There’s a couple whose wedding plans clash with the big day, a footballer lost in the war and Bob Stott, – the newsagent determined not to miss the match who walks 212 miles from Bolton to Wembley in ribbons and clogs.

Martin Barrass (The Kings of Hull, Hull Truck; The Railway Children, Kings Cross Theatre; One Man Two Guvnors, National Theatre) will be playing Bob Scott, the man who walks from Bolton to Wembley, for the third time.
