What’s on > What’s on in May

George Costigan and Bríd Ní Neachtain star in our new co-production with Citizen’s Theatre, Glasgow, A Long Day’s Journey Into Night, one of the greatest American dramas of the twentieth century. Over the course of one devastating day at the Connecticut summer home of the troubled Tyrones, the resentments of the family are exposed, pushing their bonds to the limit. We also welcome back two HOME favourites – Sh!t Theatre with DollyWould, their fresh and funny tribute to country legend Dolly Parton, and Scottee’s Fat Blokes, a sort of dance show about flab, double chins and the men they’re attached to. Elysium Theatre Company are also here with the adrenaline-fuelled drama of good and evil, penalty and redemption – Jesus Hopped the ‘A’ Train.

In our cinemas, film seasons include May ’68 and the return of Pilot Light TV Festival, with special guests including Christopher Eccleston, Sue Johnston and Julie Hesmondhalgh.

Exploring the complexities of both translation (from French to Créole) and fiction when looking at Haitian history, Louis Henderson’s Overtures continues in our main gallery throughout May. This film installation charts the progress of Henderson, alongside producer Olivier Marboeuf, devising a performance for the forthcoming Ghetto Biennial with a collective of eight young Haitian actors, poets and slammers. On the walls of our Granada Foundation Galleries, we’re showcasing the work of Greater Manchester Art Prize 2017 winner Susan Gunn with new exhibition Ground Evolution.
