June theatre

For June, here is a selection of performances that may be just off your radar.  A good opportunity to see something different and perhaps unique.

Oldham Coliseum showcases new writing and emerging talent with First Break, 22 – 30 June.  A packed programme of plays, rehearsed readings, showcases and discussion in the Coliseum Studio.  

HOME goes undercover with Black Antler,  7 – 17 June.  Go undercover for one night across secret locations in Manchester to explore the moral corruption at the heart of state surveillance.  I heard amazing things about this when it was on in Brighton last year; now it’s in Manchester with a local cast.

Royal Exchange Studio has Bears, from Manchester based theatre company Powder Keg who were awarded the 2016 Hodgkiss award, 14 – 18 June.  This is your invitation to watch the world crumble as three bears sniff away at its carcass.  Fascinating.

Lowry hosts Transporting Live, a no-holds-barred immersive, in-yer-face theatre production,  6 – 10 June.  Originally presented under Bristol’s Temple Meads station in 2016, not for the claustrophobic!

Bury Met goes site specific in a caravan with Mobile on June 23 (Ramsbottom) and 24 (Bury).  A 40 minute show for eight people about class in modern Britain.

At Contact, from 20-21 June, Peter McMaster presents 27, a highly physical look at transforming the threat of untimely death into an explosive celebration of being.

Theatre lover, amateur director, occasional actor, writer.
