Dante or Die is on the road with a new staging of its '80s-inspired show Take On Me, offering an intimate insight into the goings on at a local leisure centre.

This unique production will tour to Broughton Leisure Centre, Salford from February 15 to 17 in association with The Lowry.

Beauty and loneliness collide in Andrew Muir’s surreal play, seen through the lens of an everyday fitness and leisure centre. It follows a lonely woman at the gym for the first time and a lifeguard who has never saved anyone.
