A PLAY based on a Bacup murder could tour the rest of the UK after winning rave reviews for its Manchester run.
Black Roses: The Killing of Sophie Lancaster was staged at Manchester’s Royal Exchange from September 19 to 29.
Audiences donated more than £1,200 to the Sophie Lancaster Foundation charity after watching the play, starring East Lancashire actress Julie Hesmondhalgh.
In a post on the charity’s website, a spokesperson said: “It was a very emotional 10 days for everyone. The profound impact the play had was clear to see on those who were leaving the theatre.
“We have had a great number of inquiries about if the play will tour or show elsewhere. The answer is that Sylvia is working out what will be the most appropriate for the Foundation.”
