Manuel is a play about Richard Manuel, the deeply talented and enigmatic piano player from the acclaimed musical group THE BAND. Told through the eyes of Richard's last remaining brother Al as he reflects back on thirty key years in his brother's turbulent and incredible life, the play shares the story of Richard Manuel's greatest triumphs as a musician, lover, friend and brother but also his severe struggles to overcome addiction. Hailed as "the light of THE BAND" by his good friend Eric Clapton, Manuel had a voice that could melt hearts that was forged from another world. But so too was his sensitive spirit and this story by Glenn William Grainger chronicles the clash between the harsh external road of the musician's life and one man's profound inner longing for peace and acceptance.
