What’s on > July

This month we’re excited to stage a brand new co-production with New Perspectives Theatre, an adaptation of Chigozie Obioma’s Man Booker-shortlisted novel The Fishermen. Gbolahan Obisesan adapts this powerful tale of love, vengeance and fate, about two young brothers whose lives are changed forever when a local madman utters a terrifying prophecy…

Our main gallery sees the return of Phil Collins with Can’t Do Right For Doing Wrong, including Ceremony – a look back at last year’s Manchester International Festival event that looks at the artist’s process in finding the statue of Friedrich Engels and his work with Manchester communities to welcome the statue to its new home. In our Granada Foundation Galleries, Camille Smithwick’s series of drawings and portraits in Ode to the Untruth brings to life the story of Kaspar Hauser, a teenage foundling who mysteriously appeared in Nuremberg in 1828.

Film seasons this month include Harry Dean Stanton: Wild At Heart, celebrating the late, incredibly great actor, the return of Jazz on Film, Something For Everyone: Celebrating 70 Years of the NHS, and a retrospective of the work of director Agnès Varda.
