Dirty Old Town

1868. Victorian England is hitting its stride and there’s money to be made in the grim north. ‘Where there’s muck there’s brass.’ And places don’t come any muckier than Manchester. Nor people any brassier.

Drawn from historical records and personal memoirs, the play follows Detective Caminada into a Manchester underworld of con-artists, forgers, medical quacks, imposters, pickpockets, and revolutionary anarchists, dispensing single-minded and unwavering justice as he goes.

But Jerome Caminada is about to see a Manchester he never knew existed. Here in the industrialised new world of factories, cotton-mills, and Empire – where the gap between rich and poor is fast becoming a gulf that can’t be bridged – decent honest people are being driven to commit acts of criminal desperation.

And the finest, sharpest, most-successful policeman in Victorian England will today be reminded of something he’d all-but forgotten while pursuing his one-man crusade against Manchester’s villainy…

… mercy …
