"a nostalgic look at a traditional part of British life that has been embraced and shaped by a wide array of cultures…Highly recommended."

"a slick performance…like you were part of it. The set sort of materialises in front of your eyes. You had to blink twice to believe it was happening."

Welcome to the corner shop: part grocery store, part Aladdin's cave, and part community centre.

A cast of aspiring shopkeepers – English, Indian, Iranian, Caribbean and Polish – invite you into their lives and living rooms as they set up shop in the Black Country fighting to adapt and survive in a fast changing world.

The Corner Shop

The corner shop has been at the heart of community life for longer than we can remember. It is a place to meet, to gossip, and to buy our daily essentials. It is a place of work, a public space, but often also a home. It reflects our changing world, as well as holding memories of old.

As this long-loved institution begins to disappear from our streets, The Corner Shop – a performance set in the shell of an empty shop in Wolverhampton’s Mander Shopping Centre - will take audiences on a rich journey down high streets and behind shop counters.
