New Dawn Fades: The Story Of Joy Division

“I was crying. It was very emotional at the end. It captured everything perfectly. I loved it; it had everything – the music and the emotion... there was such a buzz in the building.”
Rowetta Satchell (Happy Mondays).


“New Dawn Fades is a spellbinding and brilliant play about one of the greatest bands of all time... I totally urge anyone left out there who believes in music to be so much more to go and see it”
John Robb - www.louderthanwar.com
