SALFORD UNDERGROUND DRAMA
 

Star date: 15th May 2011

ADDICTS ADRIFT IN THE CREEPY CRYPT

THE CRYPT PROJECT
Tues 17th – Tues 31st May 2011 £8/£10
The Crypt, St Philip with St Stephen Church, Salford

Down in the crypt of the old Greek-style St Philip with St Stephen Church, off Chapel Street, something is stirring.

The underground crypt, which until now has been sealed off from the public, is the venue for a new dramatic experience by Happy Storm Theatre where addiction is uncovered and explored in creepy crypt kicking detail…

Full story here…


The Crypt Project

The premiere of The Crypt Project comes with a warning… the floor is uneven, the ceiling low, lighting is minimal and `guides will be available at all times should you need to leave or go to the safe space'. This kind of sets up the mysterious drama nicely.

All we're told about the new production from Salford's Happy Storm Theatre is that "Lead through the tunnels, the audience discover characters in desperate and often hilarious situations. A jigsaw puzzle narrative, the story emerges from all around (and within) the audience for a 360 degree experience".

The `experience' has the subject of addiction at its core, and has been inspired by workshops with the `recovering community in Salford', but the audience maps its own journey through the tunnels where stuff happens – a bit like real life really.

Directed by Sarah Meadows and starring Stuart Wolfenden, Matthew Ganley, Denise Kennedy and Susi Wrenshaw, The Crypt Project should be well worth a unique trip.

The Crypt Project begins with a preview on Tuesday 17th May (7pm £5) and runs at various times until 31st May. There's a limit of 20 tickets per performance.

The Crypt, under St Philip with St Stephen Church, St Philip's Place, Salford, M3 6FJ

The meeting point is the Creation Café within the Angel Centre, next to the church, 15 minutes before the performance starts.
