Volcano Theatre Company

Manifesto was performed by the Swansea-based Volcano Theatre Company and toured throughout the UK in 1994. has been referred to as "The Communist Manifesto" in some of Michelle's biographies.

With choreography by Nigel Charnock, the cast originally comprised Paul Davies, Scott Graham, Steven Hoggett, Jan Knightly, Fern Smith, Simon Thorp and Charlotte Vincent. It was later re-worked with Michelle Gomez, Juan Carrascoso, Denise Evans and Fabrice Guillon.

There is very little information available about Manifesto. I have found a number of earlier tour dates for the production but have chosen to omit them because most clash with The Android Circuit, indicating that they took place before Michelle joined the cast. I've deduced that the new cast with Michelle took over for the BAC since this venue had two preview performances. More explanation here.
