Star date: 16th April 2017

CAN LOVE AND SEX REALLY BE SEPARATED?

Stolen Moments
Friday 21st and Saturday 22nd April
Z-Arts, Manchester

Broughton actor, Vincent Stable, stars in a new community production, Stolen Moments, at Z-Arts in Hulme this week. The drama focuses on an interracial extra marital affair, or 'quick fumble', between a young woman and a middle-aged dad. But there's loads more behind the production and the theatre company that's performing it, as Ian Leslie discovers.

'If we don't act and do it ourselves, where will the next generation of actors like Albert Finney or playwrights such as Shelagh Delaney come from?'


Broughton actor, Vincent Stable, is appearing in a new play called Stolen Moments in which the 45 year-old ex-Pendleton Sixth Form College drama student portrays step-dad Dave, in a production that tackles the taboos and prejudices of an interracial extra marital affair.

Stolen Moments is described as 'a modern day passion play about deceit, desire and consequences...it focuses on the intense relationship between Zara and a middle-aged dad...What effect does an affair have on his wife Anna, and what lies behind Zara's need for a quick fumble with an older married guy? Could it be her troubled home-life, dominated by the sinister Dave?'

Although Vincent is playing a sinister character, he hopes that audiences will take a liking to Hadesa Sonné's highly relevant tale... "I am really enjoying being a part of Stolen Moments" he says "Apart from the subject matter, the surrealistic movement in it makes it really different and interesting to watch."

Vincent has appeared in many films and student productions, and is currently starring in comedy soap Crooked Valley on YouTube. He is well familiar with the issues that face those aspiring to work in theatre, and aims to pass on his experience to fledgling performers. 

Multi-talented Hadesa Sonne is the writer and producer of Stolen Moments, and also a member of a cast of four great actors. They have total belief in their project and are doing their own funding, staging and promoting. It will tour venues after it premieres at Z-Arts on April 21st and 22nd.

They are a production company that are keen to tackle tough social issues and to offer a voice, and a stage, to those who feel excluded. – or those who may not have previously considered theatre.

"We want to perform Stolen Moments, look for people to join us from all parts of the community and give them a say" actor and cast member Pete Gibson states "Don't be surprised if words like unity, community and diversity are involved..."

Hadesa also elaborates on the ethos of the company that has still yet to be named... "Mainstream theatre is incredibly difficult to break into and, despite the platitudes from big theatre companies, it is particularly problematic for people of colour" she explains "Even getting started as an actor has massive financial implications, including paying for headshots, film show reels and membership of casting agencies...once, Equity membership was all that was required..."

Inspired by Idris Elba's Oscar discussion, they hope to break boundaries and encourage young people and women into a predominately white-male dominated industry. They have a great DIY ethos and state, 'If you're not invited to the party, hold your own!'

The team behind Stolen Moments are clearly driven and are a passionate new talent, representing groups that can feel excluded by the theatre... "If we don't act and do it ourselves, where will the next generation of actors like Albert Finney or playwrights such as Shelagh Delaney come from?" they state.

Meanwhile, the play asks the intriguing question, 'Can love and sex really be separated?'...

SALFORD UKIP GENERAL ELECTION CANDIDATE STANDS DOWN OVER ‘ODIOUS’ INTEGRATION AGENDA

Star date: 27th April 2017

CANDIDATE CITES 'IGONORANT', 'UNACCEPTABLE', 'VILE'... 'RELIGIOUS BIGOTRY' AND 'MUSLIM BASHING' OF UKIP

"I do not wish to have my good name sullied by association with this odious agenda..." Seamus Martin

Seamus Martin, who was expected to be announced as the prospective UKIP candidate for Salford and Eccles, has withdrawn from standing, 'appalled' at the party's 'so-called Integration Agenda', which he describes as 'Muslim-bashing'.

Speaking exclusively to the Salford Star, Seamus says it's an "odious agenda"...an "alienation agenda aimed at deliberately demonising one specific community..."

He adds that UKIP's call for a moratorium on Muslim state schools is "ignorant and unacceptable", and that "This vile agenda was sneaked through without the knowledge or consent of UKIP party members..."
