JAILHOUSE SHOCK

The Myth Of Escape
Breathe Out and Happystorm Theatre
Studio Salford, King's Arms
Until Sunday 10th July

Following on from Happystorm Theatre's The Crypt Project down in the bowels of St Philips Church, Happystorm has teamed up with Breathe Out Theatre for a prison drama with a difference.

Set in a cell, this latest production is `A dark comedy exploring isolation, oppression and the fight to hold on to everything you believe in'...

Happystorm Theatre are not big on explanations, they just set up strange scenarios and immerse you right in there. For The Myth of Escape, they've teamed up with Breathe Out Theatre for the Not Part Of festival and the action takes place in a cell with two blokes, Billy and Alex…

…`Neither are quite sure what they have done wrong. Perhaps nothing. It doesn't seem to matter. Someone wanted them imprisoned and so they have been...'

All we're told is this and that it's `a dark comedy exploring isolation, oppression and the fight to hold on to everything you believe in'...
 
"You mean, there's nothing else but this?"
"I mean - sometimes - there's not even this."

And that's it really. But Happystorm are becoming something of a brand where you don't need to know the details. You just turn up expecting something off the wall and different. This production's so off the wall it's got bars…and, apparently, it's very funny too...

The Myth Of Escape is written by Rob Johnston and directed by John Garfield-Roberts, and stars Andrew Roberts-Palmer, James Jowett and Susi Wrenshaw.

Studio Salford, The King's Arms, Salford, M3 6AN from tonight until 10th July

SALFORD CITY MAYOR MISLEADING STATEMENTS ON DEVELOPER CASH

Star date: 19th April 2018

AS £5.5MILLION AVOIDED BY DEVELOPERS SALFORD MAYOR SAYS IT'S A 'MYTH'!

In the latest issue of Salford Council's propaganda mag, Life in Salford, Salford City Mayor, Paul Dennett, has denounced the "myth" that "developers don't contribute money to the city. It's simply not true" he says.

Yes, they do contribute some money but they also avoid millions of pounds in payments and provision of affordable housing. Indeed, Salford Star analysis shows that developers avoided almost £5.5million in payments last year, as the Mayor only tells half the truth.

Cash-strapped Salford City Council is to give huge pay rises to senior officers after a 'job evaluation exercise' moved them well up the pay scale. It follows the resignation of the Director of Finance and Corporate Business, and spreading the majority of his salary amongst other re-titled roles.
