Rise and Fall of the Northern Star

Written and performed by Stella Grundy & directed by Iain Bloomfield ~ Stella Productions


Sex, drugs and rock & roll - Tracy Star wanted it all! 


Born into the depressing landscape of 1980's Northern Britain, Tracy sought to escape the mediocrity of her life and make something of herself in the burgeoning music scene - with Bowie as her guiding light.


Tracy formed the band Northern Star, who went onto release singles, Now and Then and Heavyweight before breaking free under industry pressure andrecording as a solo artist known simply as, ‘Pop Star’. Tracy Star soon became an indie superstar and then indulgence took it’s toll...


The Rise and Fall of a Northern Star offers a peculiar blend of comedy and tragedy interspersed with an original soundtrack and rhythmic pacey dialogue. The show has received brilliant feedback from audiences and critics, as well as receiving nominations for Manchester Theatre Awards, Best Fringe Production and the Manchester CityLife Awards.

Fresh from the grindstone working on new Edinburgh Fringe material, the Heretical boys bring you a jam-packed evening of chaotic sketch comedy, including all-new sketches as well as some old favourites! Delivered through their inimitable blend of slick physicality, eccentric characters and wicked

humour, A Pie of Dubious Intent gives you a slice of the action for half the price alongside...



Sweeney Todd: The Panto!


After 15 years in exile, famed barber Sweeney Todd returns to London in

search of his wife Lucy. Little does he realise that she has been captured

by the villainous Judge Turpin. Can Sweeney rescue her from his grasp? And

sharp wit and apologies to Stephen Sondheim, Sweeney Todd: The Panto is a

bloody good time!’
