LISTEN IN THE DARK - PORCELAIN: THE TRIAL FOR THE KILLING OF SOPHIE LANCASTER
The Royal Exchange Theatre presents
A special 'one-night' only event.
Porcelain: The Trial for the Killing of Sophie Lancaster is a drama documentary made for BBC Radio 4 including interviews with Sophie's mother Sylvia Lancaster and dramatised scenes based on court transcripts written by Ian Kershaw. 

It was first broadcast on Radio 4 on Monday March 1 at 14.15pm and we will be re-playing it in our Studio space on Saturday 8 March. 
 
It is the second play following on from Black Roses: The Killing of Sophie Lancaster.
 
Sophie Lancaster was a young student who was attacked in Stubbeylee Park, Bacup, Lancashire. Sophie suffered fatal injuries while cradling her boyfriend Rob's head in an attempt to protect him from a the attack by a group of youths. Rob survived but Sophie went into a coma and never recovered. She later died on 24 August 2007.

Political, vegetarian, a pacifist, Sophie showed signs of wanting to be different from an early age. Sophie and Rob dressed in a unique way, expressing their individuality as creative artistic people through goth-style clothes, piercings and make-up, which provoked the fatal attack in the early hours of that Saturday morning. Sophie had been dating Rob Maltby, an art student for 3 years.

This is a one-off opportunity to experience a radio play in a unique way within the surroundings of the Royal Exchange Studio.
