JB Shorts 7After six sell-out seasons of JB Shorts, critical acclaim, awards and nominations there are six more plays at the Joshua Brooks pub's cellar space in Manchester from March 20 to 31. Hollyoaks actors Sarah Jayne Dunn and David Judge will be appearing in Match of the Day by Emmerdale writer Chris Thompson; Alex Woodhall, star of White Van Man and Star Stories and Christian Foster from BBC Three's Lunch Monkeys also appear and both Sue Twist and John Henshaw will be returning—the latter playing a family pet in Sit, Stay, Roll Over by Jane McNulty.

There's six plays a night, for £6! £1 per play gets you 15 minutes of work a time from writers, actors and directors who have worked in TV, radio and stage productions, winning acclaim and awards.
