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 QUAYS DEVELOPER TO AVOID £1MILLION PAYMENT WHILE NO AFFORDABLE HOUSING PROVIDED

Star date: 17th July 2018

FURNESS QUAY DEVELOPER PROVIDES NO AFFORDABLE HOUSING ON HUGE APARTMENT SCHEME

Salford's planning scandal is to go up another gear this week when an application by developer De Trafford for 421 apartments in blocks up to 27 storeys high on the site of Furness Quay is considered by councillors. Thanks to Salford City Council policies, the developer will be providing no affordable properties, while, through 'viability' assessments it is set to avoid over £1million in planning fees.

Meanwhile, the English Cities Fund (ECf) is continuing its secrecy in relation to new apartments and an office development around Chapel Street and New Bailey.
