@straubero  

The reason I keep seeing loads of theatre is that occasionally one will leap out and make it worthwhile. #MOTH @RansackTheatre

 

@markweinman

Just seen ENVELOPED IN VELVET: lovely short piece of immersive theatre in Mchester by @RansackTheatre some strong storytelling by the cast

 

@porlcooper
