Following their sell-out run at the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Sh!t Theatre’s UK tour of DollyWould, their unique love letter to the legendary Dolly Parton, cloning, branding, immortality and death - and also the story of their trip to the first lady of country’s theme park - calls in at HOME Manchester on Thursday 3rd - Saturday 5th May 2018.

Coronation Street star Jill Halfpenny leads a strong cast for the world premiere of blockbuster novel The Girl on the Train that was also a massive hit in the cinema.

Halfpenny will play Rachel Watson, the disillusioned commuter who finds herself as a murder suspect in this brand new stage adaptation of Paula Hawkins’ gripping thriller at West Yorkshire Playhouse, adapted by Rachel Wagstaff and Duncan Abel.
