    Grab your bag-for-life, stick your pound-shaped keyrings into the trolley, and step inside The Supermarket™© for a freshly-baked musical treat.

    Take a walk around [caution: wet floors ahead] and say hello to twice-divorced Vicki from checkout 6, thrice-divorced Nicki from checkout 7, and not forgetting the mysterious Karen, who lurks in the pet supply aisle, eating all the cat food. Every day in The Supermarket™© is harmoniously humdrum, until an unexpected crisis ripples turbulently across the shop floor. Can the employees save their beloved store? Who will come out on top? Does Karen even work here? The stakes are high, and the steaks are highly priced.

    ‘Unexpected item in the Bagging Area’ is an original comedy-musical from Cambridge University Musical Theatre Society (SiX, Hot Gay Time Machine) by Laurence T-Stannard and Cambridge Footlights Jamie Bisping and Amaya Holman. Get ready for an absurd hour of hilarious songs, heart-warming characters and some taste-the-difference hummus that is dangerously close to its expiry date.

    Expect chuckles. Expect brioche. Expect the unexpected (item in the bagging area).
