Creative Call - Photographers

This is an opportunity for student and amateur photographers based in North East UK, aged 14 or over to explore one of the themes of Haddock and Chips: (the power of) community, kindness, images of coastal towns, (being) lost & found, triumph over adversity, unlikely friendships & perception of strangers.

Work will be showcased in a Flickr Group which will be available to view throughout the development of the play and a future tour at which point we hope to select some of the work to be printed to exhibition standard and displayed at venues.

Images and Photography are running themes throughout the play which is peopled with richly evoked characters and is brimming with humour and humanity. It takes place over the course of one evening in a fish and shop in Whitley Bay. It is a story of a community, a story of hope, with a happy ending and an uplifting message about the power of ordinary people to work together and care for one another.  Bob, the owner of the “Frankie’s Fish and Chips Shop”, had ambitions to be a professional photographer as a young man, he never lost his love of the medium.
