Award winning territory.

IN its 10th anniversary year Manchester's prestigious Lowry Theatre is staging two plays with strong connections to the city.

This weekend sees award winning writer, Reuben Johnson's Territory attracting plaudits, whilc next Friday the curtains rise on The Key To The Garden, written and performed by Rachel Laurence.

Both plays are set in and around Salford. Territory observes a group of boys spending an evening in woods near Little Hulton. When one of the them brings along his older, successful brother the status within the group is challenged.

The Key To The Garden is a funny, moving and uplifting one-woman play that tells the story of author Frances Hodgson Burnett. She rose from humble poverty in Salford to become a member of 19th century American high society and bestselling author of classic books such as The Secret Garden, A Little Princess and Little Lord Fauntleroy.

Rachel Laurence works skillfully with director, Sandra Hunt, to bring the extraordinary story of Frances to life in a captivating production which has already been delighting audiences at theatres around the UK.
