8Th, The

"Victim of an overdose or recipient of bullet Just the harvest of the finger or the wrist It's the needle or the trigger, the 8th could push or pull it as long as folk believe that he exists" One of Manchester's greatest songwriters Paul Heaton (the Beautiful South, the Housemartins), premieres an epic new pop song, the 8TH, in a thrilling live show. Joined onstage by his band and a host of special guests, Heaton transports you to a destitute neighbourhood where the seven deadly sins unfurl. From the seven an eighth is born - a new and thoroughly modern sin that imprisons all who cross its path. the 8th is a musical masterpiece entwined with a theatrical narrative by award-winning playwright Che Walker (the Globe, Royal Court and Young Vic) and directed by Paines Plough's Joint artistic Director George Perrin. the 8th will feature a cast of performers from across musical genres who all join Heaton in the Pavilion theatre for three very special performances.
