warnmcr: it's an ill wind...

As March continues full of ferocious bluster, both meteorological and political, seemingly blowing us into a groundhog loop, maybe the performance world will offer a bit of respite...

This weekend you can still catch Tmesis Theatre's Beyond Belief at The Lowry, tonight Fri 15 Mar; and Rachel Mars's Your Sexts Are Sh*tat the Royal Exchange Theatre, tonight, Fri 15 and tomorrow, Sat 16 Mar. Over in Sheffield you can see Xavier Velastin + Hannah Mook's Me and My Whale at Theatre Deli on Sat 16 + Sun 17 Mar.

Next week (w/c 18 Mar) we, at Word of Warning, are at the Lowry for Katy Dye's Baby Face on Wed 20 Mar; while  Scottee's Fat Blokes returns to HOME (19-23 Mar); and Chris Thorpe's Status is at the Royal Exchange on Sat 23 Mar. Elsewhere, Imitating the Dog's Heart of Darknessis at The Duke's, Lancaster (19-23 Mar); and the Arts Centre at Edgehill University has Vincent Dance's Shut Down on Tue 19 Mar and Dam Van Hunyh's Dep on Thu 21 Mar.  Over in Sheffield,  Theatre Deli is busy with Shey Hargreaves's Sick on Wed 20 Mar, Willy Hudson's Bottom on Thu 21 Mar; Yes Yes No No's [Insert Slogan Here] on Fri 22 Mar; and Paula Varjack's Cult of K*nzo on Sat 23 Mar.
