Tales of Manchester Life: ‘Gaskell, Interrupted’ Performance

15 young women from our Tales of Manchester Life project took over Elizabeth Gaskell’s House in 3 fantastic performances last week! The final piece was called ‘Gaskell, Interrupted’ and encouraged the audience to imagine the different ways in which Elizabeth Gaskell might have found herself interrupted not only by the demands of daily life but by her desire to give voice to those most in need.  sm sm-19 sm-22

The young women worked incredibly hard to develop an extremely slick promenade performance which led the audience through the different rooms of the house and showcased both dramatic scenes and original music created by the groups.

We couldn’t be prouder of everyone involved and look forward to celebrating the young women’s achievements at our project celebration event at the house in a couple of weeks’ time!
