CYCM 28/09/19: What freedom really means

Submitted by on September 25, 2019 – 6:26 pmNo Comment

This week we welcome back to Course You Can Malcolm poet Oliver Lomax and MaD Theatre Company. They’ll be treating us to a very special performance of1819 three poems written to commemorate Peterloo. This is only the second full rendition of these verses composed for the 200th anniversary of the massacre. Fittingly, they were first performed at the Albert Hall on Peter Street, a stone’s throw from St Peter’s Field. We’re made up that they’re bringing them to CYCM.

Rather than a band, we’re bringing you a slice of musical comedy after Karl’s quiz as MaD preview their new production, Food Bank Boulevard. Set in Moston it’s a biting satire laced, like all MaD’s plays, with merciless North Manchester humour. Only MaD would bring international conceptual artist Rollo Hollovici to Lightbowne Road. FC United supporters who saw MaD’s earlier productions, She’s just Nipped Out for Fags and Angels with Manky Faces will recognise the style in an instant. Billed as Monty Python comes to Moston, Food Bank Boulevard opens at the Lowry on 30 September and 1 October with a further performance at Bury Met on 30 October. In the meantime, enjoy a sneaky preview at Malcolmses.

Here’s the rough timings:

1.00 Doors open

1.40 Baz kicks things off

1.50 Oliver Lomax with MaD Theatre Company, What Freedom Really Means

2.15 Quiz by George Irwell

2.30 MaD Theatre Company preview Food Bank Boulevard

3.00 Our red shirted heroes take to the field to pit their footballing wits against Bamber Bridge.

Away from the moody lighting, there’ll be the usual selection of ales, and Vegan Ronay will be serving his ace lentil stew while Eco Stu dishes out Westwells’ tater ash and cheese & onion pies.

Sounds alright, doesn’t it? Hopefully we’ll see you there. Till then….

Love is the licensee: if you come looking for us in the St Mary’s Road End then, well, you’re in the right place as that’s our permanent gaff. Once you’re through the turnstiles, go underneath the terracing, and walk down until you see a whopping big stage, badly affixed flags, and slightly disheveled looking volunteers. If there’s also a lovely whiff of food in the air, then you’ll know you’re in the right place. Entrance to CYCM is completely freemans, with the usual rules applying: no divviness, weapons of mass destruction or anyone who didn’t admire Greta when she gave Donald that look.
