Charlotte Delaney's 'Sweet Responsibility' - first UK reading EVENT FULL

Event location: WCML

Date: 3rd Nov 2016

Event time: 18:00 to 20:00


In April 2016 Charlotte Delaney, playwright and daughter of Shelagh Delaney (the Salford writer of A Taste of Honey, Dance with a Stranger and other plays) retraced an epic rail journey across America that her mother had first made in 1972. She was accompanied by Selina Todd, historian and author of The People: the rise and fall of the working class, who is now writing the authorised biography of Shelagh Delaney. The journey helped shape Charlotte's latest play, Sweet Responsibility, which is having its first reading in the UK at this event.

Come and hear Charlotte and Selina discuss the life of one of Salford's most famous daughters - and listen to members of MaD Theatre Company read Sweet Responsibility, Charlotte's play about friendship and activism, as the ugly underbelly of a rural idyll puts a treasured friendship to the test.

31.10.16: Free tickets for the event were available via Eventbrite but have now all been taken. THE EVENT IS FULL - sorry if you have missed out.  We will be working with Charlotte and Selina again so sign up to our ebulletin here to make sure you get advance information of all our Library events.
