The Cobbled Haze Club are excited to bring this ambitious restaging of STRANGEWAYS at the King’s Arms Theatre, Salford, running from 24, FEBRUARY - 27 FEBRUARY 2014.  It’s a wet Mancunian morning. Dot is unpacking into her new high-rise flat, with just her treasured tabby Tiptoes for company. That is until dead husband Vinnie makes an appearance. And whilst psychological worker Sam has Dot’s best interests at heart, when there’s talk that Tiptoes may have to be confiscated, we are catapulted into Dot’s dark, turbulent past. STRANGEWAYS is a darkly comic exploration of loneliness, loss and senility. 
STRANGEWAYS recently completed a hugely successful run at Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2013, billed as ‘touching and moving’ (ThreeWeeks), and a ‘powerfully emotional journey’ (EdFringe Review) and being named their Pick of the Fringe. Leading the cast is MTA best fringe performance nominee Stella Grundy, best known as lead singer of 90s rock band Intastella, fresh from touring her self-penned one-woman show ‘The Rise and Fall of a Northern Star’ which has also ran at the 2014 re:Play festival to 5* reviews. Alongside her is Oliver Hamilton, whose credits include a promenade production of the musical ‘Cabaret’. Completing the cast is Roisin Brehony, who has recently worked on an open-air tour of London with Shakespeare’s ‘The Comedy of Errors’, a Manchester tour of Puss in Boots and performed at Chicago’s Second City./
