Claybody Theatre latest production Dirty Laundry will be performed at the 250 year old Spode Pottery works as it is converted into an exciting new theatre space for this Potteries based production in October.
Deborah McAndrew ex corrie star and award winning playwright that wrote Ugly Duck says “It’s a domestic thriller where a young woman, who is caring for her dying father, begins to realise he has a secret. It’s about the unravelling of that secret." The play is set in a potter's house in 1950's and written as based in Burslem, The Mothertown of The Potteries."
Along with director husband Conrad Nelson and the team Deb's production company Claybody Theatre have been able to gather a fantastic cast to put on this play set in 1950's Burslem. It stars talented actors including Rosie Abrahams, Angela Bane, Phil Wright, Robin Simpson and Jason Furnival.
If you want to show your support for Stoke bid to get City of Culture 2021 then attend this! The judges from the panel will be attending and we want to see the place packed out every night! to show that the city wants to see more culture in the city. It is expected that the judges will be making their decision around the time the play is showing so we hope this Claybody production will contribute to everything that’s happening in Stoke-on-Trent for the bid.
Michael Escolme, manager of the Spode Museum Trust and Heritage Centre, said it is fantastic to have such a production staged at the works. He said: “The timing with the City of Culture bid is fantastic because this will shout beyond our limits of what a great cultural city we are and what great things we have going on here."
