This production ended on 27/02/2016


Set in a tough part of Manchester where drugs and gangs rule, Tom and Eve are head over heels in love and studying at college with the goal of getting into a university in another city to escape their abusive parents.

Tom wants a career in graphic design; Eve is an aspiring rapper who wants to hit the big time. When Eve discovers she’s pregnant, they make a pact to raise enough money to get out of town sooner. Eve starts performing at local underground rap contests hoping to secure a record deal, while Tom’s efforts hit a brick wall forcing him to go to more extreme and dangerous lengths to get the money they need. In doing so he crosses into forbidden territory, bringing tragedy into both of their lives.

Lapse of Honour will be followed by a Q&A with Rayna Campbell.
