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…

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.

DONALD TRUMP... 'THE WORLD'S MOST DANGEROUS LEADER SINCE THE 1930s' 

Thousands of people packed Albert Square in Manchester last night to voice anger over US President Donald Trump's visit to the UK. Groups from every section of society that Trump has dissed were represented on stage – from Mexican dancers to an ex-US soldier, to trade unions, peace, climate change, refugee, LGBT and women's rights campaigners, plus spokespeople for youth and children. 

To kick off the evening, Manchester councillor, Pat Karney, called Trump "The most dangerous leader since the 1930s...we have to stop the ideas of Trump going across the world..."

'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".

SLOW WALKING, LOCK ONS AND ALL DIRECT ACTION OUTLAWED BY JUDGE

Many of the actions used by protesters at the Barton Moss anti-fracking demonstrations in Salford were outlawed by a judge at Manchester Civil Justice Centre yesterday, including slow walking, lock-ons and any obstruction of the highway.

The judgement, in relation to Cuadrilla's fracking site on Preston New Road, Lancashire, has implications for all anti-fracking protests... "This is an incredibly sad day for the right to protest peacefully" said Jonathan Bartle, co-leader of the Green Party.
