A few more photographs of Miss Allison, Leeds Playhouse part of The Guardian review by Catherine Love Blow Down opens with destruction.
It’s 2022 and the last cooling towers of Ferrybridge power station are coming down. But despite this dramatic opening image, Garry Lyons’ new verbatim play is less about the power station and more about the erosion of the community around it.
In the hands of a skilled cast, distinctive individuals come into focus: the man who worked for decades at the power station (Matthew Booth), the glassworker with crude stories to tell (Matthew Bugg), the restless jack-of-all-trades who’s done everything from playing in a band to fixing wind turbines (Luke Adamson), the pair of Scottish miners’ wives who have always made the best of things (Allison Saxton and Nicky Filshie).
Let Miss Angela know if you’re interested in joining her for a trip to watch Blow Down with Miss Allison and the cast.
