Many of you will be aware that there's a fantastic theatre festival going on at the moment at The Lass O'Gowrie in Manchester, BLADE RUNNER was due to be part of that festival, however the play has been postponed until April, an announcement from Gareth Kavanagh,Producer of the Festival is below. Castings continued for the show yesterday and I can confirm that there is an absolutely amazing cast in place for BLADE RUNNER so far, it's all good news as this show will now be given the breathing space to create a vivid and memorable theatre experience. I'll be making further announcements on that soon...watch this space, in the meantime here is Gareth's announement.
I am thrilled to announce though, we have a fine replacement in the shape of Joe O'Byrne's latest excellent I'MFRANK MORGAN, reinterpreted by Director Ian Curley, which will be in exactly the same slots as Blade Runner. This is a first for the Lass and we're very pleased to be able to showcase it in Lassfest.
The new dates for Blade Runner are April 5th, 6th, 7th, 9th and 10th. See you then I hope.
