While the country might be feeling a little hectored, in parts performative we're heading into the calm after this week's storm. Certain colleagues insist that the pursuit of a spherical object in Russia offers all the drama needed, but I'll be flipping a Robbie-style bird at that and going to ground.
This weekend tonight, Fri 15 and tomorrow, Sat 16 Jun you can still catch Breach's The Drill at HOME; and Barrel Organ's Anyone's Guess How We Got Here at the Royal Exchange Theatre (also at The HUB, Leeds on Sun 17 Jun). Elsewhere, tomorrow Sat 16 Jun there's also Eggs Collective's Make Noise In The Library at Parr Library, St Helen's and Living Record Production's Thrown at Bradford Theatre in the Mill.
The remainder of June is pretty quiet. You could check out House of Ghetto at Tribeca on Sat 23 Jun; or, further afield, in Bradford Stand and Be Counted's Where We Began is also on Sat 23 Jun, and CLASS:The Elephant in the Room is at Theatre in the Mill on Tue 26 Jun; and in Leeds Adam Young is doing a work in progress at Live Art Bistro on Sun 1 Jul. Things haven't quite ground to a halt, however, as June's penultimate day sees the start of a big burst of new writing activity at HOME in the shape of Incoming Festival (29 Jun - 8 Jul).
Given how quiet things are, I might give your inboxes a break for a week - so unless something unmissable pops up, I'll be back on Fri 29 Jun.
