NEW DAWN FADES – A PLAY ABOUT JOY DIVISION AND MANCHESTER is
the critically acclaimed play that chronicles the rise and fall of Manchester’s
ground-breaking post-punk band and the tragic suicide of lead singer IAN CURTIS.
“The audience is guided through the heart and soul of both the band and the city, interviewing an array of historical figures, including Roman General Julius Agricola, Dr John Dee, and the Buzzcocks! The result is a spellbinding journey of love, passion, progress, grief, and of course music, drawing inspiration from the enigmatic lyrics of Ian Curtis, with a soundtrack featuring live performances of his most beloved tracks.”
The play toured the UK since 2013.
The makers just announced that the play comes back in
September 2023 to celebrate its 10th Anniversary. All info HERE.
