Angels with Manky Faces

There will be a final, one-off performance of the play inspired by The Gangs of Manchester at the Dancehouse theatre in Manchester on Thursday, 15 July. Angels with Manky Faces will be performed by Manchester’s MaD Theatre Company.

Angels with Manky Faces played to packed houses at the Library Theatre and the Dancehouse in 2009. This additional performance is to raise money towards the production costs of MaD’s forthcoming play, Thai Brides and Teacakes.

Angels with Manky Faces features original film sequences set to classic Madchester songs, with cameos by members of The Smiths, the Inspiral Carpets, the Mock Turtles and Twisted Wheel. They appear alongside Manchester actors and DJs, including John Henshaw (Early Doors, Looking for Eric), Graeme Hawley (Coronation Street’s John Stape) and Terry Christian.

For further details, including ticket agencies, see the Dancehouse website.
