Sweetly Sings The Donkey, 7-8 Sept, Lowry Theatre

This play, based on a radio trilogy composed by Shelagh Delaney, is going to be ace. You can book tickets here  safe in the knowledge I am not performing in it. The link gives you information about the play’s content, which spans women’s lives across the last 60 years. It  is part of a bigger project on the history of working-class women, culture, and feminism, involving social and affordable housing tenants in a Salford high rise, MaD Theatre Company, and the Working Class Movement Library, which is connected with my forthcoming biography of Shelagh Delaney: more details here.
