Danny Lamb, has been mentored by award-winning playwright Nicola Schofield and has developed his initial draft into a 30-minute stand-alone piece of theatre, telling A Different Story of Rochdale. M6 Theatre Company and Touchstones, in association with Rochdale Literature & Ideas Festival, will soon tour the piece to local schools. Here you have the chance to see it first!
