Acclaimed choreographer and director Darren Pritchard (Mother of the House of Flava, House of Ghetto) would like to invite you to a Rent Party in Wigan. A 21st century Austerity Britain immersive show inspired by the 1920s Harlem Renaissance Rent Parties.
Rent Party is the long overdue party we all deserve. A night in which local artists share stories of marginalisation, invisibility, mental health, and identity. Join our cast to shout and celebrate what it’s like to be working class, silenced and talented in Wigan.
Theatre experience not required; this show is founded on raw, honest story telling. We’ll be celebrating Wiganers, struggles, talent, triumph, resilience and pride and you will no doubt recognise or even be related to some of the cast who call this brilliant town home!
This show will not be what you’ll expect and is not to be missed! Book a table for you and your friends to enjoy games, dancing, singing, and falling in love with local talent!
Very limited tickets available as this performance will be taking place in our beautiful Victorian Courtroom.
