Still housed in its original purpose-built venue on Mosley Street, it is now open free to the public six days a week for an eclectic calendar of exhibitions and events, complementing the unique collection of books, archives and illustrations spanning over 450 years.

Holliday Grainger is a stage and screen actor. Holliday has just wrapped filming as the lead role of Rachel in The Capture for BBC 1. She will next be seen as the lead role of Laura opposite Alia Shawkat in Animals, adapted from the popular Manchester-based novel of the same name, which premiered to rave reviews at Sundance and opens this summer.

After attending Leeds University, Holliday completed a BA in English Literature with The Open University alongside appearing in productions including The Borgias, Jane Eyre, Anna Karenina and starring as Estella in Mike Newell’s film adaptation of Great Expectations.

According to Animal’s screenwriter Emma Unsworth, Animals will have its UK and Ireland premiere starting on August 2nd!

Clare Binns, joint M.D. of Picturehouse, said: “[The film] is fresh, dynamic and obscenely hilarious, and a unique, unflinching take on contemporary womanhood. It has a truthfulness about the dilemmas we all face, and this mix of comedy and honesty makes Hyde one of the most fearless and exciting directors around.”

The film is produced by Sarah Brocklehurst, BAFTA nominated for “Black Pond,” with Rebecca Summerton and Hyde for Closer Productions, and Cormac Fox for Vico Films. It was developed with the assistance of Creative England and Screen Australia.

The pic will have its European premiere at the Sundance Film Festival: London on May 31.

Cornerstone Films is handling world sales and is co-repping North America with UTA.



 



Great casting news! Holly has joined, another, historical movie, now a romance! The production will start this summer in Ireland and New York.

Jamie Dornan (A Private War) and Holliday Grainger (Animals) have been set to star in romance Wild Mountain Thyme from John Patrick Shanley (Doubt) who is adapting his hit Broadway stage play Outside Mullingar.

HanWay will launch sales in Cannes on the project, which is set against the landscapes of rural Ireland. Dornan and Grainger will play obstinate star-crossed lovers, whose families are caught up in a feud over a hotly contested patch of land that separates their two farms.

Pic was developed by Mar-Key Pictures, Likely Story and Port Pictures and is produced by Leslie Urdang (The Seagull), Anthony Bregman (Foxcatcher) with Alex Witchel, and Martina Niland (Once) of Port Pictures. Andrew Kramer will executive produce.

The film is due to go into production this summer in Ireland and New York and will feature the song ‘Wild Mountain Thyme’ written by Francis McPeake and Robert Tannahill, covered by artists including George Harrison, Van Morrison, Rod Stewart and more recently Ed Sheeran.

Leslie Urdang and Alex Witchel commented, “Shanley’s language, humor and heart are treasures that always surprise, enlighten and entertain us. By creating such specific, idiosyncratic characters in Wild Mountain Thyme he manages to make the world feel bigger and more hopeful. Certainly more romantic.”



 



It’s 1950s, small-town Britain. Two women discover their love for each other. Bees are involved. And because of a nosy kid and the town’s love of gossip, the women can’t canoodle in peace. This is the foundation of the upcoming Tell It To The Bees to hit theaters May 3rd.

After a decade of partying, Laura and Tyler’s friendship is strained by Laura’s new love and her focus on her novel. A snapshot of a modern woman with competing desires, at once a celebration of female friendship and an examination of the choices we make when facing a crossroads.



 



Last year, Holly was part of Henrietta & Eleanor: A Retelling of Jekyll and Hyde audible original drama. Find a small synopsis and a CD cover over our gallery.

001.jpg

First published to critical acclaim in 1886, Robert Louis Stevenson’s mesmerising thriller is a terrifying study of the duality of man’s nature, and it is the book which established Stevenson’s reputation as a writer.

In this Audible Original drama Stevenson’s story is transported to modern-day London, and instead we meet Henrietta Jekyll and Eleanor Hyde.

Dr Jekyll, a charming doctor, explores the possibility of dividing the dark and light side of her personality, but in doing this she creates a monster, Eleanor Hyde. For many years she manages to live under the radar, keeping her dark secret unknown to those around her. However, gradually her evil side gains strength until Dr Jekyll is overwhelmed by Eleanor Hyde, to disastrous consequences. An exploration of human duality and forces of good and evil, this modern retelling is compelling and eerie and retains the disturbing nature of the original text.

Starring Holliday Grainger (CinderellaMy Cousin RachelStrike) and Carla Mendonça (My Parents Are AliensSo Awkward).

Also starring Tim Bentinck, Bill Fellows, Hugh Fraser, Holliday Grainger, Clive Mantle, Carla Mendonca, Katarina Olsson, Miranda Raison and Hugh Ross
