Love on the Dole

by Ronald Gow and Walter Greenwood

10th to 17th January 2015

One of the greatest Northern dramas of all time Love on the Dole speaks as powerfully now as when it was first presented in 1931.  It is a wonderfully rich and deeply moving picture of the enduring power of love and the strength of human resistance.

1930. Salford. The Great Depression has taken hold and mass unemployment threatens to devastate the residents of Hanky Park. With their father out of work, the burden of keeping the family together falls to Sally Hardcastle and her brother, Harry, as they desperately fight to break free from the shackles of poverty. 

Love on the Dole was voted one of the National Theatre's Best 100 Plays of the Twentieth Century.
