Information

Cobbled Haze Club are excited to bring this ambitious restaging of Strangeways to the King's Arms Theatre, Salford.

Dot is unpacking into her new high-rise flat, with just her treasured tabby Tiptoes for company. That is until dead husband Vinnie makes an appearance. And whilst psychological worker Sam has Dot's best interests at heart, when there's talk that Tiptoes may have to be confiscated, we are catapulted into Dot's dark, turbulent past. Strangeways is a darkly comic exploration of loneliness, loss and senility.

Strangeways recently completed a hugely successful run at Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2013, billed as 'touching and moving' by ThreeWeeks, and a 'powerfully emotional journey' by EdFringe Review whilst being named as one of their Picks of the Fringe.

This new cast includes Stella Grundy, best known as lead singer of 90s rock band Intastella, fresh from performing her self-penned one-woman show Rise and Fall of a Northern Star at RePlay Festival. Alongside her is Oliver Hamilton, whose credits include a promenade production of the musical Cabaret. Completing the cast is Roisin Brehony, who has recently worked on an open-air tour of London with Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors, a Manchester tour of Puss in Boots and performed at Chicago's Second City.
