The Manchester Project by Monkeywood Theatre


Being Mancunian has always been a huge part of Monkeywood’s identity.  Now they are trying to find out what that means…

Monkeywood have commissioned 19 astounding Mancunian writers to write 19 tiny but titanic new plays exploring Manchester and its people.  The plays take us from Moss Side to Middleton, Flixton to Failsworth, Droylsden to Didsbury and ask, when we push the clichés aside, what does it really mean to be part of this city?

The award winning Monkeywood Theatre bring this tapestry of Manchester and Mancunians back to HOME after it’s sell-out premiere in January 2018 and ahead of it’s performances on the National Theatre’s River Stage in July.
