Angel Meadow

An ANU Production

This production has SOLD OUT. The waiting list is also now closed.

Immerse yourself in an adrenaline-fuelled encounter, exhuming an area of Manchester that no longer exists. Angel Meadow, once a steaming, sordid hell on earth at the centre of the industrial world; populated by red eyed scuttling gangs, girl rippers and the displaced Irish. Here lost strangers sought solace, sex and the divine.

ANU Productions, a multi-award winning company heralded by the Irish Times as making the “most searing works of the past decade” invite you to surrender to your own Ancoats experience. Inspired by the 19th century experience of Irish migrants escaping poverty for a better life in industrial Manchester, Angel Meadow is a raw, immersive and explosive experience.

Angel Meadow moves you through a building layered with the various lives of people who passed through its doors; lodgers in a night asylum, working men in a pub, dead bodies laid out for an inquest and scuttling gangs fighting for their territory. Passing through intimate encounters and installations, your journey will be unique, shaped by the decisions you make and the characters you meet. You won’t just see the world of Irish immigrants, you’ll hear it, touch it and taste it, encountering landlords, butchers, devils and angels along the way.

Angel Meadow is a unique experience, moving in an instant from present-day Ancoats to its violent, sordid past, and back again, and even inhabiting them both at once.
