CAN’T STAND UP IN SALFORD
 

Star date: 14th May 2012

UNHOLY MESS AT STUDIO SALFORD

Can't Stand Up For Falling Down
Kings Arms
Wednesday 16- Friday 19th May £7/£5

This week, the largely Salford based Unholy Mess Theatre has teamed up with House of Orphans to present Can't Stand Up For Falling Down at Studio Salford within the Kings Arms pub.

The play, a favourite at the Edinburgh Fringe, centres on three women in the 1960s and their stories of birth, death, marriage and motherhood…

Full details here…


The play, Can't Stand Up For Falling Down, sounds like a hilarious comedy but it's actually quite the opposite, focussing on the oppression of women, as lived through the interwoven lives of Lynette, Jodie and Ruby and their relationship with the bullying and abusive Royce.

Set against the backdrop of women's liberation movement of the sixties and based in a south Yorkshire town, the trio tell their stories of birth, death, marriage and motherhood as the play aims to "give a voice to women who feel forced into silence by fear" while exploring a subject which rarely gets aired.

With an all female cast and director, Can't Stand Up For Falling Down is produced and presented by two in-house Studio Salford companies, Unholy Mess Theatre and House of Orphans. It's written by Richard Cameron, directed by Lucy Allan and stars Edwina Lea (Jodie), Lucia Cox (Ruby) and Esther Dix (Lynette).

SALFORD LADY MARGARET MCHALE TURNS ONE HUNDRED AT THE BROUGHTONS

Star date: 20th January 2019

FROM HANKY PARK TO LITTLETON ROAD VIA LANCASTER BOMBERS AND THE 'MONKEY RUN'

Salford's Margaret McHale turned one hundred this week as her six children and relatives gathered for a huge party at The Broughtons Care Home. Born in Hanky Park, Margaret moved around central Salford, to Ellor Street, Warburton Street and finally to Littleton Road, as part of the slum clearances.

A proper Salford lass, Margaret worked on Lancaster Bombers during the war and as a machinist in Strangeways, and, as the family partied with residents and staff, there were a zillion anecdotes that will echo with loads of local families.

NEW OWNER CONSIDERS RESTORATION PLANS FOR LOWER BROUGHTON THEATRE

After Lower Broughton's 'at risk' Grade II listed Victoria Theatre was sold last year, there were fears that it would be pulled down for development but the Salford Victoria Theatre Trust has today announced that its new owner "has engaged with the group to seek out a way forward, even vowing to consider plans to restore it for its original purpose".

The Trust is now putting together a business plan and pitch to present to the owner at the end of the month, with a meeting planned with Salford City Council next month to discuss the theatre's future.
