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.

'MANIAC' TRUMP NOT WELCOME HERE

A red open top double decker bus toured Salford this morning covered in slogans reading 'Trump Go Home'. It stopped off at Salford Precinct, Salford Royal Hospital, Langworthy Road and the Civic Centre before heading off to Manchester.

The bus was sponsored by Swinton-based Mary Monson Solicitors, and Mary Monson told the Salford Star that "the idea that he'll come and be feted like a respectable person is appalling". Meanwhile Paul Kelly, President of Salford TUC, called Donald Trump an "ultra-capitalist maniac".
