24:7 Theatre Festival presents

24:7 The Next Stage
The Cell by Michael Crowley


Manchester's 24:7 Theatre Festival is more than just great new theatre; 24:7 prides itself on the long term development of writers, directors, actors and producers. Following the Festival one production was selected for further development and will be performed in the Octagon Studio Theatre.

The Cell was one of the highlights of this years 24:7 Festival. Written by Michael Crowley, writer in residence at a young offenders institution, the 24:7 script was developed with prisoners and staff. It has now been selected for further development with a largely new cast and a new director. Come and see the culmination of four days work-shopping and take part in the after show discussion on the play and the issues it raises. The Cell is directed by Ron Meadows.
