THREE FAB PRODUCTIONS FROM JOE O'BYRNE

I'm Frank Morgan, Rank and the Watcher
DIGITfest, The Lowry
Sunday June 12th 3pm and 8pm £12/£5

Joe O'Byrne has been building up a growing reputation as a top dramatist thanks to his Tales From Paradise Heights series – set on an estate with all the social, financial and psychological problems that entails. Everyone has a story.

Joe's put those fictional stories on stage to great acclaim, and now he's added two short films being premiered at DIGITfest this weekend, plus the half film half play Rank. If you're under 25 or on conscessions you can see them all for a fiver!

Full details here…


'The Heights now has a really diverse range of characters brought to life by incredibly talented and passionate thus far 'unknown' actors and crew… I owe them all a huge debt. Ultimately this form of art is a collaborative process, without their incredible efforts the work stays on the page.' Joe O'Byrne

The three Joe Byrne productions showing at DIGITfest are I'm Frank Morgan, Rank and the Watcher. All well recommended…

I'M FRANK MORGAN (short film)

The first in the Paradise Heights stage series has now been made into a short film. It introduces Frank Morgan, the hardest man in the hard estate, But now he has to take on himself.

RANK (Multimedia Play)

The place is Paradise Heights again – yet it's anything but `paradise' as gangs in Halloween masks cause riots, a kid gets murdered and a grass gets major grief. With the police trying to quell a full-scale riot, and Death quite literally stalking the streets, Lisa is cut off in the rank, and in the dead of night, a ghost from the past is watching and waiting…(see Salford Star preview of stage production here)

THE WATCHER (short film)

This time it's Halloween in Paradise Heights. A little girl sits by her bedroom window, scared by 'the man' outside... Jack, a loving family man, begins his nightly lonely vigil, protecting his family... Marek, a night shift driver for Lucky Cabs, begins a shift he will never forget... Loan shark Frank Morgan roams the streets, still trying to forget a night from his past...And one house on Athlone Avenue holds secrets that will haunt them all.
