Mon 28 January - Wed 30 January

This event has passed.

This is the latest play, from writer/director Luke Bailey - a hard hitting theatrical thriller that pulls no punches in its tense exploration of trust and ambition.

Aspiring musician, Rhienen, is trying to piece his life together following a sentence in a young offenders institute. As tension boils amidst the ever expanding underclass, Dissociation takes a simmering glance at the reality of ‘Social Mobility’ in a fictionalised ignition of the 2011 riots. It's a macabre celebration of urban culture that takes the audience on a heartbreaking journey that will leave you questioning the true meaning of society.

Holliday Grainger (Neil Jordan's The Borgia's and Mike Newell's Great Expectations) and Tachia Newell (Waterloo Road, Some Like it Hip Hop) to perform alongside promising members of The Lowry Young Actors Company as well as some of Moss Side's most intriguing urban music artists.

The Coop is a ‘Not For Profit’ production initiative, a company of passionate artists of every description, who aim to deliver challenging work for the wider community.
