It’s Manchester, it’s grey, the days roll into one. Working class drama, tackling big issues with unapologetically hard hitting dialogue and northern wit to balance it out.
Sunrise for the Blind is a tough, grinding piece of theatre that depicts the drudgery and desperation of life a long, long way below the poverty line. Written by Mancunian writer and performer Lee Lomas (who also stars in the role of Nathan), this is a show that delivers as realistic and convincing a portrayal of abject poverty as anything else you’re likely to see on stage.
“With a cleverly written plot that introduces a pseudo-whodunnit mystery that persists slowly and builds tantalisingly before culminating in an unexpected twist, this is a show that tells a modern-day story of very modern-day problems in an altogether new and at times shocking way.”The Greater Manchester Reviewer
