WIN TICKETS TO ANGEL OF THE HOUSE AT HOPE MILL THEATRE, MANCHESTER
Northern Soul has teamed up with Hope Mill Theatre – a beautiful Grade II listed theatre (and former cotton mill) in Ancoats, Manchester – to offer one of our lucky readers a pair of tickets for Angel of the House.
Next month sees a glut of fantastic events taking place to celebrate Wonder Woman Festival 2017, Manchester’s creative countdown to the 100-year anniversary in 2018 of when women first won the (partial) right to vote. If this sounds like your cup of tea, then check out this fab production.
This five-star production returns to Hope Mill after a successful run in October 2015. Written by Manchester-based playwright Alex Keelan, directed by Leni Murphy and performed by all female theatre company, Asphalt Roses.
What have a care worker, a spy and a suffragette got in common? Angel of the House tells the story of three generations of women. Rose, a care worker from Manchester, Angela, a WW2 spy and Annie, a suffragette, all find themselves incarcerated and reflect on the events on their lives that lead them to this point. Angel of the House explores the impact of inequality, class, gender and self-acceptance across a century, through dark, warm and, at times, funny monologues.
