Neil and Jon West wrote the play 36 Hours about Salford poet John Cooper-Clarke. The play was performed for a week at Studio Salford, based in the top floor of The King's. Neil Bell directed.
The play won the Manchester Evening News 'Best Fringe Production' in it's annual Theatre Awards.
Although the audience enjoyed 36 Hours, John Cooper-Clarke himself was non-plussed and refused to go and see the production.
