We’re delighted to announce a new Autumn Winter season featuring over 30 shows including Rhum and Clay’s The War of the Worlds, The Lemon Table, starring Ian McDiarmid, and a new adaptation of Christie Watson’s nurse memoir, The Language of Kindness, plus festivals of new work and digital commissions delivered on a specially commissioned online platform, Homescreen.
As well as shows that missed their chance to appear at HOME due to Covid, the season includes new commissions and the return of some HOME favourites, including Bourgeois and Maurice, Le Gateau Chocolat and Hofesh Shechter.
Dave Moutrey. our Director and CEO, said about the new theatre season:
“I’m absolutely delighted to announce the return of live theatre to our building, following a very long 10 months during which our theatres have been closed due to coronavirus. We were determined to give artists whose work had been cancelled or postponed at the start of the pandemic the chance to bring their shows to the stage, and pleased to say that many of the works appearing this season are among those we were planning to host last year. As well as honouring our commitments to those artists, our programming team have also found great new work, such as The Lemon Table and The Language of Kindness, which I know HOME audiences will love.
“I’m also really pleased that festivals are back, and that with Push and Orbit we will have the opportunity to showcase some of the most exciting new works from writers and artists in the North West and from across the world.
“This is a season full of joy, compassion and excitement, that I’m proud to say represents the best of HOME at this exciting moment when – finally – all three of our artforms are live again in our building.”
We are looking forward to welcoming audiences back to our two theatre spaces. We know that some of you would prefer to have a little space in your first visits back, so we will have some socially distanced performances for many of our longer-running shows. Look out for the icon to see which performances will be socially distanced, or click here to view all shows with social distance performances.
