Something rather exciting is happening in the theatre world over the coming months: Manchester’s Library Theatre Company is to produce its final season before it merges with Cornerhouse to create a new arts centre named Home. Kicking it all off with a new piece of immersive, site-specific theatre, it looks to be a compelling few months for the company’s audiences. Manchester Sound: The Massacre is an adventure into the shaping of our city, exploring the changing face of protest, via the Peterloo Massacre and 1980s acid house rave culture, at a secret location in the city. With a community company supporting the professionals, the added excitement of the unknown, and the company’s history of success with site-specific pieces (Hard Times, Manchester Lines), expect it to be an explosive start to the Library Theatre’s final season.
