A Different Way Home
By Jimmie Chinn
Directed by BAFTA winner Noreen Kershaw
Starring Manchester Theatre Awards Best Actor Kenneth Alan Taylor

"This is one of my favourite plays. Jimmie Chinn is on a par in
this piece with Alan Bennet in Talking Heads. He has an
amazing insight into Northern working class people."

Kenneth Alan Taylor
 

In this deeply moving, funny and astutely observed play, two monologues from a brother and sister living on the outskirts of Manchester tell a powerful story from two wildly different perspectives.

Leslie, who has lived with his mother all his life, tells of the events leading up to her death, unwittingly revealing the extent of his loss and his bitterness towards his sister, Maureen. Feeling betrayed and rejected by her family, Maureen tells a different story of grief and isolation. The two powerful voices remind us of the need for families to communicate and for love to transcend prejudice.

Oldham Coliseum Theatre is delighted to restage A Different Way Home for the first time following our world premiere production in 1998 starring Roy Barraclough, which remains one of the best selling shows in Coliseum history. Director of the original production, Kenneth Alan Taylor (Best Actor 2017 for The Father, Manchester Theatre Awards) returns to the Coliseum to play the parts of both Leslie and his sister Maureen and will be directed by the BAFTA-winning Noreen Kershaw (Coronation Street, Life on Mars, Ashes to Ashes).
