Graham Greene Film Matinee:
The Heart of the Matter (12)
Dir: George More O'Ferrall U.K. 1954 1hr 45mins

Trevor Howard gives one of his finest performances as the tormented Scobie in this atmospheric adaptation of Graham Greene's novel focussing on the machinations of the human conscience. The setting is 1940's Sierra Leone, Scobie is a Catholic and a Deputy Commissioner in the local police force but his sympathy for the locals does not go down well with the colonial authorities. His problems intensify when his wife returns to 'Blighty' for a holiday and he becomes romantically involved with another woman opening himself up to the threat of blackmail. At the heart of the matter is the theme of God's capacity for forgiveness

('Our Man in Havana', the second Graham Greene film adaptation in this short retrospective will be shown Friday 16th Nov at 2.00pm)

"I Love You, Brad"
Choreography and performance: LEAP Dance Company
Design: Jayne Cooper
Length: approx. 30 mins

The comic strip has evolved into a distinct literary genre, whose characters reflect the codes, conventions and society in which they are created. Comic strip creators invent our fantasies, Everyman and Everywoman dressed up in different guises: Andy Capp, Superman, Captain Marvel, Wonderwoman, Lara Croft��..

LEAP dance company's Humber Mouth commission takes a tongue-in-cheek look at the creation of comic strip fantasies, its characters and what happens when they refuse to play the game.

Wrecking Ball Fringe Festival presents:
Clare Pollard & Antony Dunn

The poems of Clare Pollard's first collection The Heavy-Petting Zoo (Bloodaxe, 1998) were mostly written while she was still at school in Bolton.
"This is work you can't ignore�raw, reckless and more bloody-minded than an older, so-called wiser poet would dare to be." Selima Hill
She has since presented two TV poetry films, including her own Channel Four documentary on Bolton Youth as well as having been on the 'First Lines' promotion tour. Clare now lives in East London where she is writing a novel.

Antony Dunn won the 1995 Newdigate Prize while reading English at St.Catherine's College, Oxford. His first collection of poems, Pilots and Navigators, was published by Oxford University Press in 1998, and his second, Flying Fish, will be published by Carcanet next year. He also writes for film and stage and lives in York where he works as a Marketing Manager for Riding Lights Theatre Company and Friargate Theatre
