Front Row Theatre brings Collision Course, the story of two friends with opposing views hiding out in a garage during their last moments at the end of the world, to 53two Deansgate on 25th October, and then The Kings Arms on 1st and 2nd November, as Ian Leslie reports.

'As the end draws ever closer, tensions rise and their friendship is tested as they try to understand the truth behind what is happening and if they can co-exist regardless of their differences..'

On October 25th, Front Row Theatre brings Collision Course to 53two before it makes its way to The Kings Arms on 1st and 2nd November. It is an intimate story of friendship set against the backdrop of Armageddon.

The play takes place within a secluded hide-out as the two characters attempt to make their peace with imminent demise, and each other. The contrasting views and lifestyles of the two friends soon come to the fore. This adds to the tension of an already grave situation.

"The idea came about from observing the different viewpoints and opinions held by people of different beliefs" says director Matt Byrne "Looking at the current social and political climate we find ourselves in, the play examines if we can actually co-exist in harmony if we treat everyone as equal."
 
The play is staged in a confined environment, a garage, with constant reference to the current state of the world outside as the end of existence draws closer, while the characters reflect on the world they once lived in before the destruction.

The mood behind Collision Course is reminiscent of the thought-provoking work of Samuel Beckett. Matt wanted the piece to engage and keep the audience involved: "I believe that holding intrigue is all dependant on how the message of the scenes are portrayed" he explains "We have a strong cast and if a character believes whole-heartedly in what they are saying, then so will the audience.

"Smaller casts can sometimes cause challenges" he adds "but having something new in every scene and a clear intention within the script eliminates these challenges. We hope to have achieved this!"

Collision Course is a smart and spiky drama that challenges and raises questions concerning prominent social issues...Catch an intense and absorbing show at 53two or The Kings Arms.

The number of Salford councillors could be cut in a sweeping review of the city by the Local Government Boundary Commission for England..."The review will re-draw ward boundaries across the city as well as deciding how many councillors should be elected to the council in total" said a spokesperson for the Commission.

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.

ASSISTANT DIRECTORS TO GET HUGE PAY RISES

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.
