Joe O'Byrne's series of Tales From Paradise Heights, set in a mythical hard estate, have won critical acclaim at virtually every venue where they've been staged. I'm Frank Morgan, the first play in the Paradise Heights series, introduces the hench man and his demons. Frank Morgan is the hardest man in sight. A loan shark, villain and owner of the Ace of Spades night club, he casts a shadow across every character on the streets. He's frightened of no-one. But himself.

Written in Salford while Bolton bred Joe O'Byrne was at Uni here, it's since been made as a film, performed on stage and done as a multi media production at The Lowry. For this staging, first aired at the Bolton Octagon in September to rave reviews, director Ian Curley has given it a new edge.

"He's tipped the play on its head and it's radically different" says writer Joe O'Byrne, who also stars as Frank Morgan "We've seen him in the past as a suited and booted gangster but this time he's going insane with what's occurred. He looks like a guy who has lost it. It's the same script but a whole new creation."

The play gets a three night outing in the John Cooper Clarke Studio at The Black Lion, a space that Joe says will suit the play no end.

"The space fits the play quite nicely and the audience will feel they're in there with Frank Morgan" says Joe "It's a great challenge and I'm looking forward to playing him."

The Paradise Heights series of plays have taken in all sorts of strange scenarios and characters, from riots to angels, and knocking around them all has been this character Frank Morgan. This introduction to the man and his myth and his machinations is not to be missed.

EVEN SALFORD MP IS BEING DISSED BY PENDLETON TOGETHER ON DANGEROUS CLADDING ISSUE

Star date: 23rd October 2018

PENDLETON TOGETHER TOTAL LACK OF ACCOUNTABILITY

The lack of accountability surrounding Pendleton Together, which manages the dangerously cladded blocks owned by Salford City Council, is becoming critical.

Even Salford and Eccles MP Rebecca Long-Bailey is getting dissed by the company when trying to set up meetings, while an email from the Salford Star asking to see the Trident report on safety in the blocks has been ignored, despite the Salford City Mayor stating that its conclusions, at least, should be released.

Here, the suspended chair of Malus Court TARA, Graeme Langton, reports on a Parliamentary reception he attended last week with the Salford MP...

CALLOUS COUNCIL TAX LETTER SCARES ELDERLY 

Hundreds, and possibly thousands, of letters have been sent by Salford City Council to elderly people threatening them with the loss of their single person Council Tax discount as it states 'Records show that multiple adults are living at your address', even though they are widows and widowers. The letter tells them to fill in an online form 'within the next 14 days' or the discount will be cancelled.

"It's not fair to be treating your senior citizens in this way, it's just callous" says Jill Royle, whose 92 year old non-computer literate mother became totally agitated on receiving the letter "Salford Council needs to know how much anguish it's caused."

AFTER TWO DAY STRIKE HOSPITAL WORKERS WIN NHS PAY PARITY

"We stuck together and we won!" Vicky, cleaner at Royal Bolton Hospital

Bolton Royal Hospital workers are celebrating a massive victory after taking two days of strike action over pay parity earlier this month, supported by Salford UNISON and many other trade unionists.

The workers, who include cleaners, catering staff, porters and security staff, are employed by Bolton NHS Trust's subsidiary company iFM, doing the same jobs as other NHS workers but were offered pay at a lesser rate. Now they have won an increase in line with other NHS workers, backdated to last April.

DIRTY NAPPIES AND PLASTIC BAGS PUT IN BLUE BINS

Tonnes of Salford's paper and card recycling collections are being rejected as people put the wrong stuff in blue bins, including dirty nappies, plastic bags, polystyrene packing and even electrical items.
