Chippy by Henry Darke

In the heart of a Cornish fishing town, Chipahoy is the last local shop left standing. Until now. Will the arrival of new owner Frank, a charismatic cabbie from London, fan flames of bubbling anger, or ignite new passions? And what are those ripples out at sea? Will Charlie take over the boat from his legendary father Felix Hicks? Will trawlerman Hunter Chapman turn local unease to his advantage? And will young Shirley swap frying fish, for tying knots? A riotous, daring new comedy, about what it means to live in Cornwall now, by Henry Darke.
