What’s on > Theatre

This coming week is your last chance to catch our new production of Chekhov’s Uncle Vanya, adored by audiences and critics alike and running until Sat 25 Nov. Walter Meierjohann’s direction and Andrew Upton’s script combine to draw out the humour yet retain the bittersweet essence of this classic Russian tale of unrequited love and missed opportunity.

In Theatre 2, our smaller studio space, the Manchester School of Theatre’s final year students return with their production of the Pulitzer Prize-winning Picnic by William Inge.

Daring spoken word collective Pen:Chant bring their latest meditations on the subject of Protest & Revolution to our stage as part of HOME’s A Revolution Betrayed? season. Come along to experience taboos being busted, boundaries trespassed and walls torn down. Viva la revolución!
