Later this month local theatre company Fresh Loaf Productions are staging their largest and boldest piece - Laura Wade's Breathing Corpses.

Over the last year, Fresh Loaf have had great success. Their production of Jack Thorne's Stacy was selected by the NSDF as one of the top ten productions nationally by a team under the age of 25. It was in this production that Joe Mellor won Spotlight's ‘Best Actor' award. He is next on directing duties for this production.

An episodic production, said to be littered with dark humour, Breathing Corpses explores how people respond to death. From the hotel cleaner Amy finding another body in a hotel room, to the funny smell coming from one of Jim's storage units, the production challenges humanity's struggle to find light in the dark. There's no going back on what they've seen, but can they continue to go forward?

Set in the basement of Victoria Baths, Breathing Corpses plays 26 - 28th and 28 November at Victoria Baths on Hathersage Road in Manchester at 7.30pm.
