University drama students are confronting the issue of domestic violence as part of their final degree project.

The piece published in the Bolton News is about the play which used comedy to satirise the use of violence in culture whilst alluding to the abusive relationship in seaside puppet show Punch and Judy.

The students — Lindsey Farley, Anthony Appleton, Vicky Cosgrove and Joey Cunningham — make up the Sucker Punch Theatre group and have written the play from scratch.


The University will once again be headline sponsor of the Bolton and Bury Business Awards which take place in September writes the Bolton News.

The event, now in its tenth year, will  take place at the Macron Stadium on September 8 when the cream of the business world will be taking the honours.


University alumna and now full-time actress Louise Wilson will be helping bring a little bit of comedy to the subject of dying when she stars in a new black comedy by North West writer Sarah Cassidy.

The production, covered in the Bolton News, will take place in Manchester at Gullivers in Oldham Street this Saturday and Sunday, Joshua Brooks in Oxford Road next Friday and Nexus in Dale Street Manchester on Saturday.
