You are cordially invited to attend a performance of a Political History of Smack and Crack



‘This is an angry, funny play about a lost generation.  Inspired by the playwright’s own experience, the play traces the fate of two addicts from the epicentre of the riots across the country in 1981 to present day Manchester, chronicling the fallout for communities crushed by the heroin epidemic at the height of Thatcherism.’ 

After a fantastic run at the Edinburgh Fringe, we are delighted to be hosting the brilliant The Political History of Smack and Crack this November!


As a part of the With One Voice International Homelessness Arts Festival and Summit, we are hosting a run of 70 seat shows in our performance space inside newly refurbished Mustard Tree Ancoats.


We are so excited to be a part of the festival, as every project is developed alongside people with experiences of poverty and homelessness – and we’d love our amazing supporters to be there.
