warnmcr: climate emergency...

As the powers that be's climate commitment crumbles as fast as their concrete, at least in performance world things are standing firm...

This weekend, you can catch The Commission for New and Old Art's When You Made Me Laugh at the Talleyrand, tonight Fri 22 Sep. Rhum + Clay's Project Dictator is at HOME (until 30 Sep); and Hidden Track's The Cost of Everything is at The Lowry on Fri 22 + Sat 23 Sep. Manchester Independents commissions see a double bill featuring See Me + Kao Hove at Contact tonight, Fri 22 Sep, and, for the more theatrically minded, Porcelain Delaney's Toilet Paper Diaries at 53Two on Sun 24 Sep. For the young at heart The Really Fabulous Family Cabaret is at Z-arts on Sat 23 Sep.
Elsewhere ADHD The Musical is at the Unity in Liverpool on Fri 22 Sep. Much further afield, in Billingham, The Festival of Thrift is on Sat 23 + Sun 24 Sep.

Next week (w/c 25 Sep) For us, the big story of the week is the 23rd Emergency which takes over Contact on Sat 30 Oct - train strike-willing 23 pieces of work in one day - full afternoon and evening programme details now available!

Elsewhere, The Lowry has an eclectic mix of Eun-Me Ahn's - Dragons on Tue 26 + Wed 27 Sep, and Earwig on Thu 28 + Fri 29 Sep. Manchester Independents has Leo & Hyde's Ruins of Earth dystopian tour of the city on Sat 30 Sep and Sam + Shirley Jamil's Ward 76 is at M6 in Rochdale. For those looking for something more discursive, Michael Pinchbeck's Bunker Talks re-start on Tue 26 Sep at The Salutation.

Further afield there's an Open Stage night at Theatre Deli, Sheffield on Tue 26 Sep, Lydia Cottrell's Brightside is at Ryde Studio, Leeds (28-30 Sep) and Pepa Duarte's Eating Myself is at the LBT, Huddersfield on Sun 1 Oct.

The following week (w/c 2 Oct) Peyvand Sadeghian and Two Destination Language are at HOME, Bobak Champion at The Lowry; Princess Arinola at The Whiworth; and The Commission for New and Old Art at the International Anthony Burgess Foundation.
