BLADE RUNNER: A Live Adaptation at The Lass O’Gowrie

Our friends at Manchester’s Lass O’Gowrie pub are continuing their series of audacious adaptions this weekend as they bring Blade Runner to the stage!


One of the most influential pieces of 80’s cinema (directed by Ridley Scott from a script based on Philip K Dick’s “Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep?”), Blade Runner is the futuristic tale of a Policeman assigned to track down and terminate four rogue androids who have returned to Earth seeking their maker.

This stripped back, live fringe adaptation, a Lass Premiere, considers profound questions of what it actually means to be alive – and who defines what constitutes life.

Directed by Ian Curley and Produced by Gareth Kavanagh and Ian Winterton, the cast is Cátia Perry, Natalie-Marie Perry, Carly Tarett, Brian Gorman, Joe O’Byrne, Gabriel Paul, Amir Rahimzadeh and Daniel Thackery.

Kicking off today, Saturday 6th April @ 3:00 pm & 7:30pm, subsequent performances follow on the 7th, 9th, 10th April @ 7:30pm. Tickets for all dates are £8.00 and you can book online @

The Lass O’Gowrie can be found at 36 Charles Street, Manchester M1 7DB
