Jane Horrocks' Cotton Panic hits MIF

Jul 10, 2017

The world premiere of Jane Horrocks’ industrial music drama Cotton Panic! opens at the Manchester International Festival 2017 on Saturday 8th July.

Created by Jane, Nick Vivian, Wrangler and featuring Stephen Mallinder, Cotton Panic! explores how the US civil war created a cotton famine which caused catastrophe for Lancashire’s mills. It’s the tale of the north of England’s inspiring solidarity with the slaves of the American South.

Cotton Panic! runs from Saturday 8th July to Saturday 15th July at the Upper Campfield Market Hall.
