Victoria Baths

A recent visit to the Victoria Baths, which will be the setting for the forthcoming HOME production of Romeo and Juliet. A beautiful building and an amazing location for a play.

September Plays

It is fitting that the first month of this blog should feature three very different Shakespeare plays. It is also highly unusual, as Shakespeare is not normally a feature of the Manchester theatre scene. Nevertheless, all three of these shows should offer challenging, innovative theatre. Romeo and Juliet, Hamlet and Othello.


I want to use this blog to explore the incredible range of theatre that is staged in Manchester – from the mainstream and headlining shows to the tiny fringe venues.
