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...

TOOTHBRUSHES AND SOCKS FOR THE HOMELESS

On 9th January at the Manchester Civil Justice Centre, the judge allowed an eight day extension for those homeless people currently occupying the old doctor's surgery in Eccles. The case has now been set for the end of January, giving them an extra two weeks to prepare a legal defence.

Meanwhile this week, the Salford Unemployed and Community Resource Centre, which is helping the Shelter, took delivery of loads of pairs of thick winter socks and around one hundred toothbrushes and toothpaste tubes donated towards its new Medical and Dental Surgery for the homeless and ex-offenders.

'IT'S THROWING RESIDENTS TO THE WOLVES OF RAMPANT DEVELOPMENT'

‘CONCERN’ OVER SALFORD CITY COUNCIL NURSERIES

Star date: 14th January 2019

'CONCERN' AS SALFORD COUNCIL NURSERIES PUT OUT TO TENDER

In a letter to Salford City Mayor, Paul Dennett, the Save Our Salford Nurseries Campaign has expressed concern that the uncertainty and "slow progress" over the future of the five outstanding Council nurseries "has had a significant impact on the staff and service".

The nurseries were put out to tender last month, and the Campaign, while inviting the Mayor to a meeting at the end of this month, warns him that "A privatised option has been shown to lead to problems of cost, delivery and long term viability".
