Halloween is barely over, and, with the ghosts of Christmas past, present and future lurking, horror is never far away. The Dead, Live invites the audience to participate in a live psychic medium show, in which things may not be quite what they seem.

Lawrence Dodds is a popular 'psychic' medium who knows he's a fake, but the world of Spirit may have some shocks in store for him when someone unexpected attends one of his live shows in this eerie drama by Daniel Thackeray.

The Dead, Live is a ghost story, ten years in the making, that has been performed to much acclaim at places like the London Horror Festival, at the Stage Fright: A Day of Theatrical Horror at the Kings Arms in Salford last month (see here), and now it's coming to Smiths Restaurant in Eccles on Wednesday 15th November.

"The wonderful sense of being in the same room with something otherworldly...I wanted to capture that" says Daniel "And, of course, that element is also present, in a different way, in live psychic shows, the kind of thing that Derek Acorah does. It seemed to me that to write something which combined the two could be a real winner. Still, it took a long time to get the balance right but, thanks to a brilliant director and cast, I think we've finally done it. And audiences are in for something really memorable...

"The performance at Eccles will mark the final performance of the play for 2017, and offers theatre-goers in search of some spooky entertainment the opportunity to enjoy an excellent meal before the show" he adds "Could be an excellent opportunity for an unusual date!"

SALFORD POLIO SUFFERER WAS TRAPPED UPSTAIRS FOR THREE MONTHS AS HOUSING ASSOCIATION WON’T FIT LIFT

Star date: 23rd November 2017  

DISABLED SALIX HOMES TENANT TOLD TO FIND NEW PROPERTY

Salix Homes tenant, Thomas West, has a worsening polio condition that meant the stairlift at his house in Weaste needed alterations but then kept breaking down, leaving him trapped upstairs for three months at one point.

Thomas has been advised by Salford Council that he needs a vertical lift fitted but Salix Homes state it is against their policy and have asked him to consider moving to 'more suitable accommodation'... "I don't want to move" he says, suspecting financial concerns are being put before his needs.

COURT THROWS OUT SALFORD SCHOOL FINE FOR MUM WHO KEPT SERIOUSLY ILL SON AT HOME

HIS BROTHER HAD ALREADY DIED OF SAME ILLNESS BUT 'HEARTLESS' SCHOOL FINED MUM FOR UNAUTHORISED ABSENCES

"He wasn't going out enjoying himself; he was actually at home trying to breathe..."

A judge at Manchester and Salford Magistrates' Court has thrown out a fine given by Buile Hill Visual Arts College to mum, Nicola Newns, for 'unauthorised absences' of her son, Jacob, despite him suffering from the same serious illness that tragically took the life of his younger brother, Ben, a few years ago.

Court papers showed that the school complained it took them two hours once to contact Nicola – when she was actually in an ambulance with Jacob on the way to A&E; and then couldn't contact her for four days...when she was sat by his bed in intensive care "Praying he gets better".

SALFORD SALIX HOMES DISABLED RESIDENT SUICIDE ATTEMPT AS CRIES FOR HELP IGNORED

Star date: 21st November 2017

'HORRIFIED' PARENTS TELL OF SALIX 'TURNING BACK' ON DISABLED SON 

"We can't understand how anyone can let a company do this to a vulnerable person forcing him to try and take his own life..."

The parents of a disabled man living in a Salix Homes flat off Blackfriars Road have written to the Salford City Mayor, Salford MP and local councillors after their son tried to commit suicide in a motorway car park.

The email states that Salix refused to help deal with anti-social behaviour and disability access issues, and "refused to accept that he is even disabled" despite him receiving full PIP... "The fact that his urgent cries for help have been ignored and his landlords have turned their back on him and instructed solicitors rather than provide the help that he urgently needs is horrifying".

NETPOL CALLS FOR 'URGENT EXTERNAL REVIEW' OF ANTI-FRACKING POLICING

"Our fundamental right to protest is being eroded by ever more oppressive policing" Keith Taylor, MEP

Community watchdog, Netpol, has today published a damning report on the policing of anti-fracking protests over the last year, which shows police using "increasingly confrontational and violent tactics against protesters", and calls for an 'urgent' and 'external review' of policy.

The report states Netpol has seen evidence of "police officers pushing people into hedges, knocking campaigners unconscious, violently dragging older people across the road and shoving others into speeding traffic..."
