Award nominated Vertigo Theatre Productions present the hit Off Broadway Charles Busch masterpiece ‘Die, Mommie, Die’ at the Sachas Hotel on Friday 24 and Saturday 25 Augustat 7.30PM. This event is part of Manchester Pride Fringe and tickets are priced at only £8.

Following a sell-out run at Taurus, the team has secured the ballroom at Sachas Hotel, Manchester, for two performances only.

The story is set in the 1960s and follows the life of Angela Arden, a fallen pop star who is trapped in an unhappy marriage. Desperate to break free and find happiness with her younger lover, Angela murders her husband; however, in a chilling and campy turn of events, Angela’s children decide to avenge their father’s death by killing their mother.

Craig Hepworth, director at Vertigo Theatre Productions, said: “We are thrilled to be bringing back the UK Premiere of this hilarious show and even more excited that it gets to be a part of Manchester Pride, a perfect match.”

Jackie Crozier, festival director at Manchester Pride, said: “This is one of my top ten events to catch over Pride Fringe this August. Die Mommie Die looks like a brilliant camp comedy, and I advise anyone who did not catch it at Taurus to make sure they see it this time around!”

The show promises to be funny, campy and thrilling with outstanding performances.. Tickets can be purchased from www.quaytickets.com and it is advised to book early to avoid disappointment.

Manchester Pride 2011 takes place from Friday 19 – Monday 29 August and tickets for the Big Weekend are on sale now. For more information see www.manchesterpride.com.
