Press Night: Monday 30 June at 7pm

THE Cobbled Haze Club are excited to introduce

UNION for its world premiere from 30th June to the 5th July 2014 - a radical, ambitious in-promenade theatrical experience!

The Union pub drag queen, Gloria, is off her face. She is talking to a hallucinated Cilla Black when she notices a dead body floating in the canal. The face is familiar - but who is it? A series of interconnecting monologues follow, exploring the dark lives of the regulars and workers of The Union pub, helping Gloria gradually uncover the identity of the body.

Already described as ‘passionate, lyrical and angry’ by 24:7 Theatre Festival,

UNION is brought to you by the same team behind STRANGEWAYS (‘witty and genuinely innovative’ - Broadway Baby, **** RemoteGoat, **** The Mancunion, **** Public Reviews, **** Manchester4Women, **** ThreeWeeks, **** EdFringe Review: Pick of the Fringe).

Fronting the cast as Gloria is professional drag artist Belinda Scandal, who recently made an appearance in BBC 3’s
PEOPLE LIKE US. Alongside her is Jo Dakin, who starred in PESTS at the Royal Exchange and Everyman Theatre; Andrew Husband joins following his appearance as Widow Twankey in ALADDIN at the Academy Theatre in Barnsley; the cast is also joined by Robin Lyons, Rebecca Riley and Lucy Ross-Elliott.
