Carol Harrison has been announced as the final star to be cast in the all-female preview of The Thunder Girls at The Lowry, September 24–28.

She will star alongside Coronation Street’s Beverley Callard, Coleen Nolan and West End’s All About Jamie star, Mina Anwar.

The show has a female writer, female producer and female director and all from working class roots. The debut play by Melanie Blake is an adaptation from her first novel of the same name which will be released by Pan Macmillan this summer. The week-long première preview will open at The Lowry September 24.

The run is nearly sold out in a record time for a completely new piece.
