The cast of Band of Gold

Band Of Gold, the première of a stage adaptation of Kay Mellor’s ITV series, stars Laurie Brett, Gaynor Faye, Kieron Richardson, Shayne Ward and Sacha Parkinson when it plays The Lowry's Lyric Theatre in January.

Following Fat Friends The Musical, producer Josh Andrews and Kay Mellor have teamed up again for Band of Gold, to be directed by Mellor. The thriller tells the story of a group of women—Carol, Rose, Anita and Gina—as they battle to survive whilst working in a notorious red-light district. When one of their colleagues is murdered, they need to find the killer before they strike again.

First aired in March 1995, Band of Gold starred (amongst others) Geraldine James, Cathy Tyson, Barbara Dickson and Samantha Morton.
