We are pleased to announce our exciting new season for Theatre 2! Sharing stories and experiences from Manchester and beyond, this is a season that reflects, questions and humors the world we live in today. The programme includes returning artists, those new to the stages of HOME and Manchester, and those fresh from the bright lights of the Edinburgh Fringe.
Featuring work from Yursa Warsama, Hot Coals Productions, Schalk Bezuidenhout, Rinkoo Barpaga, Tiff Stevenson, Alasdair Beckett-King, Action Hero, The Hero Next Door, YesYesNoNo, Jo Fong & George Orange and Jenni Jackson, this new season presents monologues from the Deaf, Disabled & Neurodiverse, uplifting stories of life inside care homes, stand–up comedy from some of the UK’s leading comedians, multimedia autobiographies and hopeful cabarets.
