What do you say about an Hungarian aristocrat who murdered 650 women for the sake of her own vanity? Plenty as it happens, as De Profundis brings its production of Countess, based on the true story of Elizabeth Bathory, to the Eagle Inn on 29th and 30th October in all its gothic, scary splendour.

"I developed this story after being introduced to an Hungarian friend in 2001" says writer Amanda Fleming "In the past I'd always seen documentaries based on her as a political pawn but nothing that included what all the poor people of the day thought, so I added the supernatural twist. It is an historical piece with jumps and scares around every corner, and deeply thought provoking, whilst still maintaining its gothic chill."

Since 2001, Countess has only been performed a few times as Amanda, who is also an actress, was working in LA. But now the script has been developed and perfected, and a recent performance in a gothic church in Todmorden received a review acclaiming the production as 'great fun and quite chilling'.

"It was such a brilliant run we were encouraged to perform it a little more central, and we had people leaving saying 'I don't normally like theatre but will go a lot more now'" Amanda recalls "We are hoping to raise money, sponsorship or funding to help take this piece to communities that may not get to theatre very often, and we can perform it in a village barn if need be..."

In the meantime, the murderous Countess and 'friends' will be chilling audiences at Salford's Eagle Inn. It's well worth a visit...

SALFORD UNIVERSAL CREDIT RENT ARREARS DOUBLE THAT OF NON-UNIVERSAL CREDIT TENANTS

Star date: 16th November 2018

INCREDIBLE ARREARS INDICTMENT OF UNIVERSAL CREDIT

In a new City West Housing report for Salford City Council, it is revealed that, in Salford, the percentage of tenants on Universal Credit and in rent arrears is over double that for tenants who are not on Universal Credit. The figure is 78% compared to 37%.

City West currently has 1109 tenants claiming Universal Credit, and the company states that "The overall rent collection rate for these tenants for 18/19 is 93.05%, which is significantly lower than our collection rate for all tenants." It's yet another shocking indictment of the controversial benefit system.
