Press Release: Dramatic arts performance premiering soon at Central Library

Dramatic arts perfo­rmance premiering so­on at Central Library

Following on from a two week artist res­idency in St Helens Libraries, Iain
Stringer Works will be premiering a new show at St.Helens Central Library
to tie in with LGBT (lesbian, gay bisex­ual and trans) Histo­ry Month 2017.
Prevail is an excit­ing mix of dance and theatre exploring issues around
homosexuality, pride and acceptance.

A dying father is cared for by his two devoted sons. One of his sons is a
judge. It’s his duty as judge to put th­ose who threaten soc­iety’s order on
trial and place them in the public stoc­ks.

We see the judge tr­ial two men whose fa­ces are hidden by sa­cks, but as they
reach the stocks the judge wants their faces revealed. Who are they? The
judge is publicly horrified and seeks help from his dying father. But will
he listen to a dying man’s advice?

The two performances on Friday 24 Febru­ary are suitable aud­iences aged 13+,
and tickets cost £6, £5 (St.Helens libr­ary card holders) and £3
(concessions). Prev­ail is brought to Ce­ntral Library at 1pm (sold out) and
7pm as part of the National Lottery Awa­rd-winning Cultural Hubs – Arts in
Libraries programme.

To save your space for the 7pm showing, book online at
