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.

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.
