Beverley Callard leads way for world première

Published: 2 March 2019

A world première of The Thunder Girls starring Beverley Callard is to preview at The Lowry.

Three more leading British actresses are yet to be announced

It’s a debut play by Manchester local Melanie Blake starring four female actors over the age of 50 and will be at The Lowry September 24–28.

Blake adapted the play from her debut novel of the same name. It follows an ’80s girl group reuniting 30 years after greed, envy and ego tore the band and their friendship apart. The play focuses on what goes on during the night from hell when lead singer Chrissie tries to reunite the band she dumped.
