WIN one pair of tickets to see new play Secret Thoughts at the Bolton Octagon, plus two signed copies of the text by David Lodge.



The production is an adaptation of the acclaimed novel Thinks... by Lodge. He is one of the UK’s foremost writers whose astonishing career has spanned more than fifty years. He has won countless awards, including Royal Television Society's Award for Best Drama (Nice Work) and the Whitbread Book of the Year (How Far Can You Go?).

Married University professor Ralph Messenger has a reputation as a ground-breaking cognitive scientist and a notorious philanderer. When he meets the recently bereaved novelist Helen Reed, sparks fly and battle commences. It’s science against art and morality against indulgence. But as their passionate and argumentative relationship develops into sexual attraction, their intellectual foreplay looks like it could become a full blown affair of the body and mind.
