troublehouse theatre Debuts in Manchester with EQUAL PARTNERS, Running Now thru July 31 at Kings Arms, Salford
Written by David Tomlinson, Equal Partners is the debut show from an exciting new, up and coming Northern theatre company: troublehouse.
Equal Partners directed by Paul Elsam is set in Scarborough upon the cliffs at the Raven Hall Hotel. Local lad Graham (Rick Bithell) stands on the cliff edge, the bells from his own wedding still ringing in his ears, seeking comfort and guidance from the only thing familiar to him: a fibreglass pig of his own creation. On the same cliff edge, Jenny (Heather Carroll) seeks the comfort and protection of a nearby bush in an attempt to salvage her romantic weekend with the boss...and unexpectedly his wife! So join Graham and Jenny as they stand above a one hundred and fifty feet drop to discuss relationships, morals and fibreglass animals!
Equal Partners runs from today, the 29th, to the 31st July at the Kings Arms, Salford. Tickets are priced at £5. Tickets can be purchased from http://www.wegottickets.com/event/277797.
Equal Partners is set in Scarborough upon the cliffs at the Raven Hall Hotel. The show runs for 50 minutes with no interval.
About troublehouse theatre: Rick Bithell and Heather Carroll trained together at the Academy of Live and Recorded Arts North and graduated in 2012.
Upon graduation Rick and Heather moved to Greater Manchester and quickly became involved in its theatrical scene. Their passion for naturalistic performance led to the creation of troublehouse theatre, a company that strives to bridge the gap between professional and fringe theatre in the North West. When asked what they wanted troublehouse to achieve on the Manchester scene, Rick answered: "The aim is to provide our audiences with the same quality professional theatre experience that they're now accustomed to in the North but at an affordable price and in venues other than those established theatre spaces". Too which Heather added: "Not only that, we want to promote new writing and talent in the North. We're both proud Northerners who want to nurture the growing theatrical buzz that's in Manchester, and indeed the North, right now".
