One of the cornerstones of Manchester culture for the past 50 plus year, the Library Theatre Company are back with a new production. Months in the making, the eponymous star of the story is Honest, a new guy in town, desperately trying to put in the hard yards to get a promotion at work and, more importantly, impress his fiancé. Working in a city the worst crime rate in the country, Honest misses his last train home, and has to battle through a series of shady characters to try and make his way home. Can he make it back in one piece? Each character has been developed through workshops by the theatre, and this play is the culmination of this, exploring their chequered pasts and the reasons behind their actions.
Mon 15 Jul – Tue 16 Jul, International Anthony Burgess Foundation, Chorlton Mill, 3 Cambridge Street, M1 5BY, 7.30pm, £5/£3 concs, http://tickets.cornerhouse.org/
