Library to Stage Site Specific Hard Times
Date: 15 April 2011
Manchester's Library Theatre Company are set to stage Charles Dickens' classic Hard Times. Charles Dickens’ novel of the industrial North West, is a dramatic story of remarkable events in a 19th century mill town.
This unique production is staged in the atmospheric and authentic setting of Murrays’ Mills in Ancoats, where the audience is immersed into the world of Coketown. Circus, music, and a sometimes grotesquely comic edge all go into the rich mix of this truly Dickensian event.
Hard Times is directed by Chris Honer and tickets are currently on sale for the production which runs from 8 June - 2 July. Casting will be announced soon
