Drawing parallels with the 2011 Manchester riots, award-winning director Wils Wilson brings the Scuttlers back to vivid life with a strong cast of nine talented young actors.

|FROM THE STREETS: Exploring Manchester's Urban Art Scene
From the Scuttlers' chalk graffiti to an array of contemporary street art styles, this exhibition presents work from emerging and established urban artists who have collaboratively tagged the theatre from top to bottom, shared their point of view on the culture through interviews (documentary shown in the lounge), and created mural pieces inspired by the Scuttler gangs. The exhibition is now open until 7 March in The Great Hall. FREE. MORE INFORMATION
