Van Gogh Alive MediaCityUK

After welcoming over a staggering 120,000 visitors since its launch in October, the world’s most visited multi-sensory experience Van Gogh Alive has extended its run at MediaCity.

Originally due to end on 23rd January 2022, the incredibly popular exhibition will now run for an additional month until 27th February 2022.

The extension is the final chance to see the iconic ‘Sunflower Selfie room’ and life-sized version walk-in representation of Van Gogh’s ‘Bedroom in Arles’ painting.

The hugely successful experience has been visited by a number of celebrity names including football pundit Gary Neville and actresses Jorgie Porter and Dame Maureen Lipman, who said “No wonder the world has gone mad for this exhibition – it made my heart sing and feet dance.”

Prepare to transcend time and space as you accompany Van Gogh on a journey through the Netherlands, Arles, Saint Rémy and Auvers-sur-Oise, where he created many of his timeless masterpieces. Set to an evocative classical score, a thrilling display of over 3,000 inspirational images transforms every surface that surrounds you in what has been described as an "unforgettable multi-sensory experience".

Traditions of tiptoeing through silent galleries and viewing paintings from afar in quiet contemplation are forgotten as you find yourself interacting with art in ways you have never imagined. From start to finish, you will be surrounded by a vibrant symphony of light, colour, sound and fragrance as you wander around the exhibition and absorb it from every possible angle. Van Gogh's masterpieces come to life, giving you the sensation of walking right into his paintings, a feeling that is simultaneously enchanting, entertaining and educational.

At Van Gogh Alive you don't just look at his paintings, you step inside them and feel their power.

Booking With Confidence

Worried about COVID symptoms affecting your visit? Well you can ‘Book with Confidence’ because no one with symptoms or who has been asked to self-isolate should attend the exhibition. And with that in mind, we have updated our terms and conditions so that you have up to 48 hrs before your visit to return or exchange your tickets for these reasons.

STEWART LEE
SNOWFLAKE / TORNADO

Double-bill of two new 60 minute sets, back to back nightly from “the world’s greatest living stand-up” (Times). Including new material for 2022.

The first half, Snowflake, will be heavily rewritten in the light of the two years the show has been laid off, looking at how the Covid-Brexit era has impacted on the culture war between lovely snowflakes and horrible people.

The second half, Tornado, questions Stew’s position in the comedy marketplace after Netflix mistakenly listed his show as “reports of sharks falling from the skies are on the rise again. Nobody on the Eastern Seaboard is safe.”

“Lee remains one of the best stand-ups in the country” ★★★★★ Metro

“The world’s best living stand-up comedian” Dominic Maxwell, The Times

“There’s no-one else to touch him,” Mark Wareham, Mail On Sunday ★★★★★

“He makes stand-up almost a moral pursuit, … that makes the usual (and more popular) stand-ups seem crude and obvious.” Alan Bennet, London Review Of Books. 

“Proper, vicious prejudice - a self-proclaimed inhabitant of the moral high ground” Sarah Vine, Daily Mail

“A pot-bellied Bernard Manning for snowflakes” Tony Parsons, The Sun

“If I could bring one extinct thing back to life it would be Stewart Lee’s sense of humour.”  Frankie Boyle, BBC2

“The opposite of what really good comedy should be” Toby Young, Radio 4

THE GARDEN-ORCHARD

Take a stroll through the delightful fell-side garden behind Dove Cottage, which Wordsworth referred to as a ‘little domestic slip of mountain’.

The garden has been restored to the half-wild state that Wordsworth and Dorothy lovingly created from local plants and materials. It was a place of peace and inspiration for Wordsworth, who would often compose poetry outdoors.

Whether you see snowdrops in winter, daffodils and bluebells in spring, an abundance of wildflowers through summer, or the changing colours of the leaves in autumn, Dove Cottage garden is stunning in all seasons.

THE MUSEUM

Uncover Wordsworth’s radical and creative life in the new and expanded Museum and enjoy breathtaking views of Grasmere Vale from a unique Viewing Platform.

Discover William Wordsworth’s remarkable story through a unique collection of some of the greatest treasures from the Romantic age. Objects, maps and interactive displays will help you to unravel the adventures that shaped Wordsworth’s thoughts and inspirations.

The Museum will have a range of activities for children. Have a go at writing with a quill and ink, dress up in Georgian clothes, play with traditional toys or take on a Minecraft challenge.

DOVE COTTAGE

In late 1799, while on a walking tour of the Lake District, William Wordsworth saw Dove Cottage in Grasmere and decided to make it his home. He had known the valley as a boy, describing it as ‘paradise’. Within a few weeks, Wordsworth and his sister Dorothy had moved in and were busily furnishing the home and planning a garden.  It was whilst living here that Wordsworth produced most of his greatest and best-loved poems, and Dorothy wrote her fascinating Grasmere journal.

A visit to Dove Cottage today transports you back to this remarkable period of ‘plain living and high thinking’. The sights, sounds and smells bring to life the bustling family home the Wordsworths would have known over 200 years ago. In this humble Lake District cottage, you can feel how a unique combination of people and place came together and changed poetry forever.

THE GARDEN-ORCHARD

Take a stroll through the delightful fell-side garden behind Dove Cottage, which Wordsworth referred to as a ‘little domestic slip of mountain’.

The garden has been restored to the half-wild state that Wordsworth and Dorothy lovingly created from local plants and materials. It was a place of peace and inspiration for Wordsworth, who would often compose poetry outdoors.

Whether you see snowdrops in winter, daffodils and bluebells in spring, an abundance of wildflowers through summer, or the changing colours of the leaves in autumn, Dove Cottage garden is stunning in all seasons.

Dave Spikey - A Funny Thing Happened....I shot Derek Rigby
This show was simply going to be called “I shot Derek Rigby” which Dave has freely admitted to ; in fact this has never been in doubt - there were several witnesses - but (there’s always a “but”) he thought that might be a little too weird a title so, although he will talk about the shooting in some depth (Because, to be fair, it was funny to all present with the exception of Derek), he will concentrate on the many other funny things that happen all the time.

Funny things happen at home, at work, out shopping, at the Vets, in Prison, out with his eccentric Gran and in Hong Kong - obviously. Dave’s comedy radar has always instinctively drawn him to these small out-of-the-ordinary events that wash over most of us and pass us by. Once identified, he analysis and elaborates them in his own way whilst at the same time reminding us that not only have we too witnessed them, they’ve probably happened to us!

It’s this added dimension, this comedy of association that elevates the events to laugh-out-loud funny. No wonder Time Out magazine said of him, “Not only a very funny comedian but one of the finest raconteurs around”

From initial forays into pubs and clubs to dedicated music venues, festivals and having the distinction of being the first tribute to be invited to play at Paul Heaton's Salford venue, The Kings Arms, on the eve of Paul and Jacqui Abbott's "comeback" album 'What Have We Become' the band have acquired high praise indeed with Paul himself endorsing them on BBC Radio 2 saying "they're really good".

The Hound of the Baskervilles

by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

Adapted for the stage by Steven Canny and John Nicholson for Peepolykus

Directed by Lotte Wakeham 

Produced by The Original Theatre Company & Octagon Theatre Bolton

“Rib-bustingly hilarious.” The Times

Mr Holmes, they were the footprints of a gigantic hound…

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s most celebrated adventure gets a brilliantly farcical overhaul in Lotte Wakeham’s acclaimed production.

World-renowned detective Sherlock Holmes and his colleague Dr Watson are asked to unravel the mystery surrounding the untimely death of Sir Charles Baskerville.

With rumours of a cursed giant hound loose on the moors, they must act fast in order to save the Baskerville family’s last remaining heir.

A hit in the West End, this ingenious adaptation combines an exhilarating collision of farce, theatrical invention and wonderfully comic performances to offer a brand-new twist on the greatest detective story of all time.

A whodunnit for all ages.

From the award-winning Original Theatre Company who brought you Alan Bennett’s The Habit of Art, the smash-hit comedy Invincible and the acclaimed Birdsong. 

Director Lotte Wakeham is Artistic Director of the Octagon Theatre Bolton and has directed sell-out productions in London, New York, and throughout the UK.

The Green Room: Simon Kempston

Tickets for The Green Room: Simon Kempston at The Stockport Plaza

Scottish singer-songwriter and leading acoustic fingerstyle guitarist Simon Kempston has toured the world performing his highly original, contemporary acoustic folk/blues songs and music, and is a unique talent.

His beautifully crafted folk-tinged material showcases his incredible, distinctive and intricate finger style guitar work – an exciting blend of the folk-baroque, blues and classical styles, and his gently nuanced, compelling tenor vocals.

An inspiring, poetic lyricist, Simon’s live performances are intense and impassioned, the subject matter chiefly Scottish, yet with universal appeal.

This first-time Greater Manchester concert is not to be missed.

‘One of Scotland’s very best singer-songwriters’ (Sunday Herald).
‘Stunning talent’ (STV).

“In these difficult and uncertain times people need hope – a ray of sunshine to brighten
their day. And that’s very much where I come in” says Jack.

Star of TV sitcoms Bad Move, Lead Balloon and Josh, Jack also hosts the legendary Radio 4

Additional credits include presenting Jack Dee’s Helpdesk on BBC Two, C4’s The Jack Dee Show, ITV’s Jack Dee’s Saturday Night, BBC’s Jack Dee’s Happy Hour and Jack Dee Live at the Apollo. “In fact,” explains Jack, “I’ve probably appeared in every TV show with my name in the title”.

Theatre Re: Bluebelle
Bluebelle
A journey into the wilderness of parenthood

If you see a bluebell, pick it, ring it three times and repeat the following words:
'Bluebell, bluebell, fairy flower, I beckon your greatest power’.
Then, place it near your heart and the Bluebell Fairy will come to you.

Long ago and far away a King and Queen were placed under a spell. Fertility was disrupted. They called the Bluebell Fairy, but magic comes at a cost and woe betide those who do not keep their promises. 

Weaving together plots, objects and characters from ancient folktales collected by Angela Carter, Italo Calvino, the Brothers Grimm and Charles Perrault, as well as interviews with parents and carers, Bluebelle reminds us that life is shaped by the stories we tell and leave behind. 

Through Theatre Re's signature style combining visually striking poetic theatre and lyrical live music, Bluebelle is a wondrous and mysterious tale about life and how to protect it.

One man. One Mission. Is it possible? No, not really.
Milton reveals the truth about being an international spy, before being given a disappointing new identity which forced him to appear on Mock the Week, Live at the Apollo.
But this is also a love story with the twist, or even a really bad sprain.

Extended Play: Donuts

Three friends are getting ready for a night out. The music is intoxicating, they start to
dance. It’s so good, they might stay a little longer…

Inspired by classic sitcoms of the 90s & 00s, DONUTS follows a group of friends as
their friendship evolves over time. DONUTS is a celebration of how music brings
people together, no matter what life throws at them. Bursting with precision and soul,
it is a hypnotic and playful ‘groove along’ to jazz and funk.

Drawing on his own relationship with music and its influence on his friendships
growing up, choreographer Jamaal Burkmar places music at the heart of his
creative process. DONUTS is the first, highly anticipated, full length dance piece
from the company behind JUKEBOX, the breakthrough Instagram series combining
popular music with their distinctive and dynamic style of dance.

Kattam Katti – Pagrav Dance Company

Kattam Katti (meaning Cutting Through in English) is an exquisite piece of modern dance theatre rooted in the Indian Kathak dance tradition. There are eight performers - four dancers and four musicians. The musicians play specially composed music live and are integral to the show as they move around the dancers and interact with them.

The show transports its audience to Uttarayan, the world-famous kite festival that takes place in Gujarat, North India. Tales of competition, danger, excitement and unity are vividly brought to life in a joyous, colourful and uplifting show.

This neo classical work has a distinctly contemporary feel developed out of the South Asian dance tradition. Tapping into the chaos, creativity and colour of the kite festival, Kattam Katti brings to life the excitement of Uttarayan with lyricism, drama and exquisite technique. It illustrates the highs, lows, loves and losses of lives that are lived out among the festivities.

The show is suitable for all ages and backgrounds and runs for 60 minutes with no interval.

Choreographed by Urja Desai Thakore (BBC Young Dancer choreographer) and based on her personal observations of the festival and Gujarati heritage, kite flying becomes a metaphor for the inequalities of privilege in societies and in the corporate world.
Kattam Katti is performed by a new generation of British dancers of Indian heritage. Pagrav Dance Company is highly committed to nurturing the next generation by providing a supportive platform for emerging dancers.

‘a striking and exquisite work, Kattam Katti is the antidote we all need in the current climate’
Maya Pinder, The Insanity in Dancing on an early sharing

‘a work of lightness that rides the wind-soaked eddies; the crack team of musicians combine to elevate the work to a higher realm’ Ian Abbott, author, curator, academic on an early sharing

‘Pagrav Dance Theatre's latest show Kattam Katti is rich and beautifully layered, and is sure to engage both new and existing audiences. The interplay between dance, music and narrative is deftly woven and perfectly balanced, and the brilliantly designed piece is engaging, moving and playful.’ 
Matt Burman, Artistic Director & Chief Executive, Cambridge Junction

From timeless classics like Les Miserables, Phantom of The Opera and West Side Story, to modern smash hits such as Jersey Boys, We Will Rock You and The Greatest Showman, this is the perfect show for musical theatre lovers both young and old.

The show also features a selection of beautiful operatic arias that the boys have become known for over the last few years, from La Donna e Mobile to Nessun Dorma.

With beautiful vocal arrangements, spectacular close part harmony and a great line in humour, The Opera Boys have been delighting audiences all over the world with their unique show combining beautiful, powerful and emotional music with funny, engaging and light-hearted entertainment.

The boys trained at some of the UK’s finest schools including The Royal Academy of Music, and have each become highly successful performers in their own right. Between them they have performed lead roles on London’s West End and on Broadway in New York. They have performed as backing vocalists to some of the world’s biggest superstars including Russell Watson, Robbie Williams, Tom Jones and Elton John, and in 2015 one of the boys appeared as part of the Belgian entry for The Eurovision Song Contest, performing to a global audience of 200 million, and placing a very respectable 4th in the competition!

Together the boys have performed in theatres and concert halls throughout the UK and have travelled all over the world performing their show. In 2018 they performed as soloists with The National Symphony Orchestra.

They have been invited to perform at a number of prestigious events including the 10th Anniversary of the world’s most famous cruise ship, Cunard’s superliner Queen Mary 2, and the inaugural voyage of P&O’s largest cruise ship Britannia, launched by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

Film: The Lost Boys (Cert 15)
Two new-in-town brothers discover a local gang of motorcycle youths (including a young Kiefer Sutherland) are more undead than alive. Younger brother Sam (Corey Haim) works hard to eradicate the ghouls but his older brother (Jason Patric) falls in love with the group's lone female (Jami Gertz). Soon, he finds that he's gradually becoming a vampire himself.
Shot on location in the coastal California town of Santa Cruz, The Lost Boys became a pop-culture phenomenon thanks to its attractive young stars, off beat soundtrack, and hip, clever marketing campaign. The film's tagline: "Sleep all day. Party all night. Never grow old. Never die. It's fun to be a vampire." perfectly captured its knowing mixture of attitude and gore.

Ahir’s last show, Dots, was recorded as a special for HBO Max (albeit after a 14 month delay brought about by events you may recall). That show was about uncertainty. Ideally, this tour will end in a way that is less on the nose.
 
As seen on Mock The Week, Live At the Apollo, Have I Got News For You, and The Mash Report.

Spirit Of The Blitz

To celebrate this very special anniversary, we open the 1940s songbook for a tribute to the legendary stars who kept us smiling through our darkest days. Spirit Of The Blitz recaptures the tenacious optimism of war-torn Britain on the long road towards peace.

Sing along to swinging hits like Don't Sit Under The Apple Tree, Bless 'Em All, Leaning On A Lamp-Post, and of course, We'll Meet Again.
Starring Andy Eastwood, Maggie O’Hara and Pete Lindup, this feel-good show recreates all your forties favourites, including Vera Lynn, George Formby, Max Miller, Bing Crosby, Anne Shelton and Gracie Fields... A truly heart-warming afternoon of live music and laughter.

For those who remember the 40s, the show is a trip down memory lane; for those who don't, it’s a Sentimental Journey back through time to the glorious melodies and good clean comedy that accompanied a dogged nation's battle for survival.

This unmissable performance is devised and produced by Andy Eastwood, with musical direction by David Carter.

Sir Ranulph Fiennes

Named by the Guinness Book of Records as ‘the world’s greatest living explorer’, Sir Ranulph Fiennes has spent his life in pursuit of extreme adventure, risking life and limb in some of the most ambitious private expeditions ever undertaken.

Amongst his many record-breaking achievements, he was the first to reach both Poles, the first to cross the Antarctic and Arctic Ocean, and the first to circumnavigate the world along its polar axis.

In Living Dangerously, Sir Ranulph offers a personal journey through his life, from his early years to the present day. Both light-hearted and strikingly poignant, Living Dangerously spans Sir Ranulph’s childhood and school misdemeanours, his army life and early expeditions, right through the Transglobe Expedition to his current Global Reach Challenge - his goal to become the first person in the world to cross both polar ice caps and climb the highest mountain on each of the seven continents.

Sir Ranulph Fiennes’ many endeavours have pushed his endurance levels to the very limits, inspiring generations and making him a pioneer of exploration with an unparalleled story to tell.

Shostakovich     String Quartet No. 12 in D flat, Op. 133

Shostakovich starts to ponder his legacy and the possibility of a cycle of 24 quartets in all the different keys. The classically structured, tensely dramatic Tenth is followed by the seven-movement, sardonic Eleventh, and the two-movement, expansive Twelfth, which explores twelve-note rows and extremes of contemplation and energy.

Part of the Shostakovich Cycle, 24-27 February 2022.

JB Barrington: Showing Poetential

Cult performance poet JB Barrington is a Salford-born award-winning performance poet is renowned for his searing and satirical poetry, snarling delivery of strong sentiments and sharp rhymes.

His funny, endearing and nostalgic poetry has made him one of the most powerful performers on the UK scene.

Showing Poetential delivers a rollercoaster of emotions with a brilliant and imaginative display of poetic writing covering social issues, economics, class and loss.

Barrington's unique, gritty style has won him several high-profile fans, including the bands Sleaford Mods and Reverend and The Makers who he has supported extensively on tour.

Suggs from Madness was so impressed by Barrington's book 'Woodchip Anaglypta And Nicotined Artex Ceilings' he took a copy on stage with him at Kendal Calling 2016 during the sell-out Madness Saturday night headline show and read out one of the poems.

Human Nurture

Written by Ryan Calais Cameron

Directed by Rob Watt

“I don’t agree with everything they say, but we do have a lot in common nowadays; anyway, I can’t be racist my best friend is Black.” 
Roger and Harry’s bond is so strong they could be brothers. They share the same food, music, laughs, computer games and even dreams - but not race. Roger is black and Harry is white...but what does that matter, right?  
When Roger is rehomed, Harry is left behind in the care system, and these brothers start to walk down very different paths. When Roger returns to celebrate Harry’s birthday, his new name Runaku isn’t the only change, and this dream reunion becomes much more complicated.
HUMAN NURTURE is a new play from Ryan Calais Cameron about race, privilege and belonging, featuring live music, moves and plenty of dynamite!

The Chosen Haram

Something that is “Haram” is forbidden by Islam. The Chosen Haram explores themes of faith, sexuality, addiction and human connection. Blending exquisite Chinese pole skills with visual and physical theatre and a pumping soundtrack, it tells the story of two queer men, their chance meeting through a dating app and the social, cultural and personal barriers they desire to overcome (in seeking happiness and fulfilment). The show is based on a combination of the lead artist’s personal experience as well as interviews with members of the LGBTQ+ community who identify as (ex) Muslim. It aims to highlight the personal struggles faced by people whose upbringing contradicts their personal truths and how this can lead to self-destructive behaviours. It aims to foster understanding of the issues faced by LGBTQ+ (ex) Muslims as well as celebrate their resilience. Lead artist Sadiq Ali is originally from Edinburgh and trained at the National Centre for Circus Arts in London; this is his first full-length piece.

How do you play? The audience is trapped in a retro videogame with a sadistic end-of-level boss. Choose your options, survive the abuse simulator that is the improv comedy overlord John Robertson, and escape to win £1000 – or, be brutally murdered by the rest of the crowd!

Now, will you:

This high-octane show is the brainchild of comedian & cult leader John Robertson. Filled with stand-up, appalling prizes and more audience chanting than you’d get at a protest – it’s a gut-busting rock n’ roll experience for everyone who buys a ticket.

John has performed The Dark Room to crowds of thousands at comedy and gaming festivals around the world.

As You Like It
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Laurie Sansom
Designed by E.M. Parry
 
In their 30th anniversary production, Northern Broadsides bring their bold, refreshing style to Shakespeare’s most musical and much-loved comedy for the very first time.
 
In a stylish but stifling court, where the Duke is all powerful and brute strength is championed over basic human decency, the high-spirited Rosalind and devoted cousin Celia are no longer welcome. When they escape into the forest in disguise, they bump into the recent object of Rosalind’s affection, Orlando, leading to an elaborate game of fluid identity where all the world’s a stage and all the men and women merely players.
 
As the seasons change in this magical place, normal roles dissolve and assumptions are turned on their head in this celebration of the transformative power of love and the natural world, featuring some of Shakespeare’s most vivid characters and memorable poetry. With a cast of 12 fabulous Northern actors, Northern Broadsides take to the road once more in a production by Laurie Sansom which captures the sheer joy of live performance and the crazy power of love to change the world.

Atlas

Oddly Moving present Atlas
Produced by Turtle Key Arts

Atlas was punished by the Gods to hold the weight of the cosmos for a long time -
perhaps an eternity. He’s not sure if he is a man or a mountain or a giant. His back
hurts. He wonders what would happen if he just let go.

Oddly Moving’s new show explores the Greek myth of Atlas interwoven with
personal stories about the metaphorical weight we each bear or let go of. Addressing
themes of choice, responsibility and the individual worlds that define us.

Directed by Charlotte Mooney of Ockham’s Razor and with Oddly Moving’s unique
blend of physical theatre, autobiographical storytelling and circus skills (with a
rudimentary understanding of physics) Atlas looks at how we each bear the weight of
our personal burdens, our what-ifs, joys, regrets and choices and asks what happens
if we let go?

“You have to see Grania in action: she is a highly skilled circus performer, storyteller
and connector, lighting up the entire stage.” LucyLovesCircus

Opera North - Rigoletto

RIGOLETTO

Music Giuseppe Verdi
Libretto Francesco Maria Piave
First performance Venice, 1851

New production

Rigoletto exists on the margins of a world owned by the privileged few – and is despised by them for his difference. He is in the pay of the Duke of Mantua, a man who is living proof that absolute power corrupts absolutely. Twisted inside by the life he has been forced to lead, Rigoletto is both feared for his sharp tongue and ridiculed for his appearance by the Duke’s entourage. The only thing he lives for is his daughter, Gilda, of whom he is obsessively protective. When, finally, a combination of bitterness and bravura get the better of him, the consequences for his most precious possession are fatal.

Verdi clothes this hard-hitting masterpiece in some of his most impassioned music. Rigoletto contains one of the most popular tenor arias of all time – the Duke’s ‘La donna è mobile – but the jauntiness of the tune takes on a much more chilling aspect in the context of a drama which explores the extremes of emotional exploitation.

This new production of Rigoletto is conducted by Opera North’s Music Director Garry Walker, and directed by one of the UK’s leading theatre artists, Femi Elufowoju Jr., who makes his opera directing debut. American baritone Eric Greene, whose previous work for Opera North includes Amonasro in Aida and Billy Bigelow in Carousel, sings the title role in a work of shattering power.

In the hysterical sequel to our smash-hit Menopause The Musical, we fast forward five years to catch up with the same four characters for tales of their lives, loves and losses as they set off on the high seas.

Hot flushes, mood swings, memory lapses, weight gain – these are a few of our favourite menopausal things!  Cruising Through Menopause is a hilarious, heartfelt, reassuring and unflinching look at the joys of menopause and friendship.  When your life is a bumpy ride full of twists and turns, it’s hard to find true friends.  But step on board and we’ll take you on a trip of self-discovery, love and friendship all backed by a soundtrack of brand-new toe-tapping parodied hits!

For these four ladies the menopause was not the beginning of the end, but the beginning of a beautiful friendship where love conquers, and friendships never fail.

So, all aboard and we’ll have you laughing, singing and maybe even dancing on-stage, as you join us for Menopause The Musical 2 – Cruising Through Menopause.

Opera North - Carmen (2022)

CARMEN

Music Georges Bizet
Libretto Henri Meilhac and Ludovic Halévy
First performance Paris, 1875

New production

Bizet’s masterpiece of sexual obsession and self-destruction is enduringly popular for many reasons, not the least of which is its brilliantly characterful score. It’s the story of a woman on the margins of society, driven by a fierce, uncompromising desire for personal liberty, and of a man who, in the grip of sexual obsession, tries to own her.

The opera’s frank sensuality, stark emotional realism and brutal violence outraged many in its first audiences, and it was widely condemned for its perceived immorality. Almost 150 years later, Carmen presents new challenges to contemporary sensibilities, whilst Bizet’s music – overflowing with passion, colour, energy and unforgettable melody – continues to mesmerise.

Edward Dick directs our first Carmen in ten years following his triumphant Tosca for the Company in 2018.

‘The production’s real strengths … lie in Dick’s understanding of the psychological dynamics between the protagonists … It’s compelling stuff, disquieting, creepy and exciting in equal measure.’ Tim Ashley, The Guardian, on Tosca, 2018

ALCINA

Music George Frideric Handel
Libretto Anon.
First performance London, 1735

New production

On an island paradise, a young man, Ruggiero, has fallen under the spell of a woman, Alcina, who is experiencing real love for the very first time. But on Alcina’s island nothing is as it seems, for she is an enchantress who transforms her discarded lovers into non-human form, and her island is a barren wasteland whose apparent beauty is maintained only by her powers of illusion. When Bradamante, Ruggiero’s fiancée, arrives on the island intent on reclaiming her lost love, Alcina’s magic is tested to breaking point.

This extraordinary tale of deception and disguise, of love and loss, of enchantment and illusion, is told in some of Handel’s most richly inventive music, such as Ruggiero’s regretful farewell to the beauty of Alcina’s island, ‘Verdi prati’.

Our first ever production of one of Handel’s most popular operas is directed by Tim Albery, responsible for a sumptuous revival of Giulio Cesare for Opera North in 2019. It reunites him with Baroque specialist Laurence Cummings, who led the Company’s highly acclaimed production of Monteverdi’s The Coronation of Poppea in 2014.

China Crisis

China Crisis were never your run-of-the-mill 80s pop band. Formed in Liverpool by singer Gary Daly and guitarist Eddie Lundon, they distilled their love of David Bowie and Steely Dan into an exquisitely melancholy post-punk sound that saw them win their just chart rewards. Has there ever been a more wistful Top 10 hit than the charming Wishful Thinking?

Their hero Walter Becker – of Steely Dan fame – was so impressed he even became a band member back in 1985, producing and playing on Top 10 album Flaunt the Imperfection, and returning for 1989’s hugely acclaimed Diary of a Hollow Horse. And, all the while, the hits kept rolling in… Christian, Black Man Ray and King in a Catholic Style all made their way into the UK Top 20

A Tale of Two Cities

If you’ve never read Dickens’ 1859 novel of revolution and excessive gestures of love, then this is the
show for you. If you have read it, this might also be the show for you, depending on how well you
remember it.

Dickens left a lot out of his novel, particularly when it comes to Lucie, the central female
character. She was underwritten, all her psychological complexity left on the cutting room
floor. This show picks up those offcuts and sticks them together, possibly in the wrong order, to
rediscover the real story of this complex, troubled, funny 21st century woman.

From the creators of Paradise Lost (lies unopened beside me) and Juliet & Romeo, comes a re-staging
of one of the bestselling novels of all time (allegedly). Part dance, part theatre, part fictionalised
documentary, no-part costume drama, this is Lost Dog’s nearly unrecognisable re-imagining of a
classic.

The Blow Monkeys

With hits like ‘Digging Your Scene’ and ‘It Doesn’t Have To Be This Way’, The Blow Monkeys epitomised the glamour of mid-80s pop at its most graceful and sophisticated. In the band’s frontman Robert Howard (aka Dr. Robert), they possessed a tall, charismatic singer who was both camera-friendly and clever, who appeared to be just as much at ease on the catwalk that is pop’s conveyer belt as he was penning witty, incisive songs. While quite clearly Robert’s band, though, the Blow Monkeys were also gifted three immensely talented musicians in bassist Mick Anker (he of the trademark bowler hat), saxophonist Neville Henry and drummer Tony Kiley.

Behind the band’s stylish veneer lay something else, which became increasingly apparent from Robert’s lyrics. While some of the Smash Hits generation avoided politics with a capital P, The Blow Monkeys openly criticised the policies of the Conservative government, railing against social injustices and adopting an openly left-of-centre stance on issues of the day.

From openly endorsing the gay community “Digging Your Scene” to an outright attack on Margaret Thatcher ‘Celebrate (The Day After You)’ – a duet with the late, great Curtis Mayfield, The Blow Monkeys were always the thinking person’s pop group.

As the 1980s progressed, so too did the band’s musical style, from a sound once dubbed “jazz punk” by Robert to a more soulful, jazzy style and an ever-increasing adoption of dance music. The Blow Monkeys of their rare, indie debut single ‘Live Today Love Tomorrow’ (recorded on a shoestring in 1981) would be barely recognisable to those who bought the Balearic remix of ‘La Passionara’ from 1990. And yet a soulful, spiritually uplifting strain has continued to run through their music – and, indeed, that of Robert’s solo recordings – to this day.

David Hoyle: Ten Commandments

Following smash-hit Diamond, David Hoyle returns to The Lowry with Ten Commandments, combining his captivating stage performance with lacerating social commentary. Rioting the wrongs of contemporary Britain, Ten Commandments promises to rebalance all the inequities and injustices that surround us.

In this light-hearted antidote to the rat-infested dystopia in which we currently find ourselves, David returns the Garden of Eden to its natural state free from nuclear weapons, landfills and perpetual burning forests. We welcome the congregation to liberate themselves and others in a thermonuclear explosion of love and also hope for what remains of the 21st century.

“He is raw, sometimes a bit frightening, but also thrilling in his look-no-hands recklessness.” – The Guardian on David Hoyle’s Magazine

“There is nothing quite like it: bold and unique, electrifying and disarmingly humane.” – Time Out

The Dolly Show

As seen on BBC ONE and voted the U.K’s No 1. Dolly Parton tribute by the Agents Association of Great Britain!

Undeniably one of the BEST Dolly impersonators you will ever see, West End star Kelly O’Brien performs the beloved hits of country legend Dolly Parton, brilliantly recreating the vitality and voice of the little lady from Tennessee.

Kelly is the best in the business; she sounds like Dolly Parton, she looks like Dolly and she’s as witty and entertaining as Dolly.

The show includes up-tempo numbers like 9 to 5, Baby I’m Burning and Islands in the Stream, as well as powerful ballads such as I will Always Love You, Jolene and Coat of Many Colours.

Kelly is no stranger to the stage and has been performing all over the world for 20 years and is the only Dolly Parton impersonator to have been invited to sing with Dolly Parton’s band in Nashville, Tennessee.

Dracula - one man in search of the truth
The most famous Gothic horror story of all time.
Few stories capture the imagination more powerfully than ‘Dracula’.
But when James Gaddas (‘Bad Girls’, ‘Coronation Street’, ‘Medics’ etc) comes across Bram Stoker’s original handwritten copy while working on a satellite channel TV show, what he reads chills him to the bone.
From strange encounters in the Count’s castle in Transylvania, to his ghostly arrival on a ship of death off the coast of Whitby, through midnight seductions and a heroic pursuit across Europe, racing against the setting of the sun – all have served to thrill and excite readers in equal measure.
Gaddas brings the original version to life – before sharing his discovery in this electrifying stage show.
One actor, fifteen characters –
One monumental decision -
Are some things – better left buried?

Matt Chorley: Who’s in Charge Here?

Matt Chorley has spent the past 15 years in Westminster seeing up close how politics works, or doesn’t. After the sell-out success of his first tour This Is Not Normal, the award-winning Times columnist and Times Radio presenter is back with an hilarious new show exploring who really calls the shots. Is the Prime Minister actually in charge, or at the mercy of the opposition, backbenchers, lobbyists, the media, spin doctors, his wife, or the Queen?
‘Great British stand up is alive and well… Matt Chorley with acid wit and music hall timing’ Andrew Marr

‘No politician is spared in this delightful display of disdain’ ****

Seven Brides for Seven Brothers
Bursting with the energy of the original MGM film, Seven Brides For Seven Brothers is all boisterous fun and romance that harkens back to the glory days of the movie musical. A truly rollicking adventure that teaches that it takes a bride to turn seven unshaven unkempt brothers into manly gentle men and to turn desire into romance.

Set in Oregon in 1850, Seven Brides For Seven Brothers tells the story of Millie, a young bride living in the 1850's Oregon wilderness. Her plan to civilize and marry off her six rowdy brothers-in-law to ensure the success of her own marriage backfires when the brothers, in their enthusiasm, kidnap six women from a neighboring town to be their brides.

Sheila’s Island

The Office meets Lord of the Flies meets Miranda.

Sheila’s Islandis a sparkling, sharp-witted new comedy from writer
Tim Firth (Calendar Girls, Kinky Boots, The Band), starring Olivier Award winner Sara Crowe
(Private Lives, Calendar Girls, Four Weddings and a Funeral), and Judy Flynn (The Brittas Empire, Dinnerladies).

Bonfire night 2019, Sheila, Denise, Julie, and Fay are Team C in Pennine Mineral Water Ltd.’s annual outward bound team-building weekend. Somehow, Sheila has been nominated team leader, and, using her cryptic
crossword solving skills, has unwittingly stranded her team on
an island in the Lake District. Our intrepid heroines find themselves manufacturing weapons from cable ties and spatulas, and create a rescue flag with plastic plates and a toasting fork.

Questions are asked; truths are told; dirty washing is aired.

Is it possible to build an adequate night shelter with a prom dress and a sleeveless jumper? What is Julie’s husband
really up to in Aldi? And why are they on this bloody team building exercise when they could be at a spa?

Please note: This production is suitable for ages 13+

Nothing Happens (Twice)


After an exciting few years making and touring shows all over the world, Mercè and Patricia have somehow lost momentum and hit rock bottom. They always knew that making theatre would be difficult, but when they have to dress up as flamingos in a shopping centre to make ends meet, they seriously consider giving up. 

Can their shared dream of staging Waiting for Godot get them back on track or will their long held ambition be strangled by red tape? A hilarious and sometimes moving exploration of companionship, co-dependency and what motivates us to keep going, even in the face of failure and bureaucratic brick walls.
