Stella’s astonishing play ‘The Rise And Fall Of  A Northern Star’ moves to the Lowry – details here

Stella’s astonishing play ‘The Rise And Fall Of A Northern Star’ has been getting rave reviews from everyone who has seen it and is fast rising with word of mouth describing it as being one of the must see pop culture events in the city.

A play about a semi mythical Bowie obsessed northern girl who tries to make it on the greasy pole of pop culture in the Madchester era it’s a powerfully observed account of the heartache at the core of music culture.

I saw a stripped down version of it at Louder Than Words literay festival and it was mesmerising, moving and brilliant. Stella’s script was powerful and her acting and full emotional range was quite brilliant.

Your really have to go and see this, especially now that it’s getting a run as part of the Library Theatre Company’s re:play Festival at the The Lowry Basement Orchestra Changing Rooms on Mon 20 Jan 8.30pm, Tue 21 Jan 9pm, Wed 22 Jan 7pm. Tickets £8 (£6 concessions).
