MONDAY 10 FEBRUARY - SUNDAY 16 FEBRUARY 2020
POLITICAL HISTORY SMACK CRACK
11 - 12 FEBRUARY
Settle in for an on-stage exploration into northern communities under Thatcherism. A co-production between Offstage Theatre and Most Wanted, Political History Smack Crack is a no-holds-barred exploration into Ed Edwards' (play- writer) own experience in the British judicial system. Following the fate of Mandy and Neil through the 1981 riots and their present day survival on the streets of Manchester, this deeply-moving drama will be etched in the memory for a long time. See it this February at Live Theatre.
