New Dawn Fades: A Play about Joy Division and Manchester

Book now
Inspired by Manchester’s ’70s punk revolution, four ordinary lads come together to form one of the most influential bands of all time: Joy Division.

New Dawn Fades is a spellbinding journey of love, passion, progress, grief and, of course, music. This unique production places the band within the context of Manchester's vibrant history, with a soundtrack that features live performances of their most beloved tracks.

A sell-out at Jacksons Lane in 2016, New Dawn Fades returns after a national tour, celebrating 40 years since the release of Joy Division's groundbreaking debut LP Unknown Pleasures.
