18:35 (
60 mins)
Theatre
Great With Mates / New Writing / Working Class Voices
Tickets from £13
Venue: Cage
Age Guidance: 15+
This show includes strong language, flashing lights, and depictions of drug and alcohol use.

Flashing lights. Sticky floors. Dancing shoes.

Tommy, a young working-class Mancunian, has been accepted into Oxford. He’s the first in his family to go to uni – the first on his street in fact… Join him on his last big night in Manchester before leaving the city he loves and disappearing South.

A riotous coming of age tale exploring class and identity. Expect humour, heart, and a night out to remember.

A Manchester Anthem has been developed from a work-in-progress under the title Dancing to Disco.

A Manchester Anthem is supported by Brixton House, LUNG Theatre and The Space Theatre. In partnership with The Sutton Trust and The Linacre Institute.

Press & Reviews

Praise for work-in-progress 'Dancing To Disco'


Theatre Weekly
★★★★★
"This is new writing that’s impossible to resist." 
"Potential for it to follow in the footsteps of Fleabag and be the next fringe show to transfer to the small screen; a Mancunian Skins for the roaring twenties."


The Reviews Hub
"Dawkins’ script is detailed and poetic, full of alliteration and metaphor"



Praise for previous work - If. Destroyed. Still. True.


Broadway Baby
