Angels With Manky Faces

Moston-based MaD Theatre Company will be performing their new play, Angels with Manky Faces, at the Library Theatre this summer. MaD are familiar faces at FC following their stellar performance of She’s Just Nipped Out for Fags in association with the development fund. They put on two sketches for Youth United Day on Saturday, prior to a sneak preview of Angels in Course You Can Malcolm’s at half-time. As those who witnessed it will know, if FC is punk football then MaD is punk theatre!

Written by Rob Lees and Jill Hughes of MaD, Angels is inspired by Andrew Davies’s book The Gangs of Manchester, which tells the story of the "scuttling" gangs of the late nineteenth century. Some of the scenes for the play are being filmed, with FC United junior supporters playing the part of the Angel Meadow scuttlers, and Rob and Jill are currently working on additional FC twist to the story ...

The play runs from 19 - 22 August, with the Friday night (21st) declared "FC night." Although it’s a long way off, a third of the seats for the Friday night have gone already so if you fancy coming along (and you’d be MaD to miss it) then book yours now.

FC supporters can buy tickets at the concessionary rate of £9.00 simply by telling staff at the Library Theatre box office that they follow FC. (You need to buy tickets in person, or over the phone, to do this - you can’t claim the FC concession if you book online.) Further details are available on the Library Theatre website here.

Warning: not for the easily offended!
