    City 125 – The Club With No History

    Dreamshed Theatre is delighted to return to the Lantern Theatre with Bill Cronshaw’s new show which takes a romp through Manchester City’s history in this, City’s 125th anniversary year.

    ‘It’s like a fairy tale!’ says the life-long Blue as he introduces us to characters including a young lad, an elderly fan, a daydreaming manager of an amateur lads’ team and a long-suffering wife, girlfriend and mum.

    This revue-style show takes liberties with dry historical facts to track City’s journey to the Etihad. Suitable for all ages, this show will entertain City diehards and general theatre-goers alike.

    DIRECTOR: Bill Cronshaw

    His Letters

    By John Martin Stevens

    Dreamshed Theatre

    During the early years of the second world war two evacuees meet in a small Wiltshire town where a friendship and love affair begins that will last a lifetime.

    When, sixty years later their love letters and other correspondence are rediscovered, it soon becomes clear that whilst war brought them together, peace could have torn them apart.

    This new drama written and performed by local writer John Martin Stevens, weaves together real events with imaginative and at times heartfelt storytelling as a son discovers that history is indeed written by the victor.
