warnmcr: delayed...

I'm sure you haven't been waiting with baited-breath for this week's gripping edition - the lateness is not the blight of Friday the 13th, but a corona 'Delay' factor - awaiting latest updates from our presenting partners for Jamal Gerald's Idol.  At present time, the message remains that all performances at Royal Exchange Theatre are going ahead as scheduled - see here for further info. It's a unique and fluid situation and I can't speak  to all the venues mentioned below, so keep checking individual websites for latest news. 

Before that, this weekend you can still catch Figs In Wigs's Little Wimmin and Bourgeois + Maurice's Insane Animals at HOME (until Sat 14 Mar); while Mark Thomas's 50 Things About Us is at Liverpool Playhouse on Fri 13 + Sat 14 Mar.

Next week (w/c 16 Mar) could be a feat of logistics. We at WoW + Contact are at Royal Exchange Theatre for Jamal Gerald's Idol on Thu 19-Sat 21 Mar.  At The Lowry, Robert LePage's 887 is on Wed 18 + Thu 19 Mar; Alexander Whitley Dance Co's Overflow on Wed 18 Mar and Best of BE Festival on Sat 21 Mar. Imitating the Dog's Night of the Living Dead Remix is at HOME 18-21 Mar; + Emergence 2020 is at Waterside, Sale on Sat 21 Mar.  If you're really keen you could do most of it - Alexander Whitley on Wednesday, LePage on Thursday, Jamal Gerald on Friday, Imitating the Dog on Saturday matinee and Best of BE festival or Emergence 2020 on Saturday night!! For something a bit different, monster/monstrum is at NIAMOS on 16, 18 + 19 Mar.

Further afield, the third Spill Yer Tea is at Constellations, Liverpool on Wed 18 Mar; while the Arts Centre at Edgehill University has Vincent Dance's In Loco Parentis on Tue 17 Mar + Vicci Riley's Herring Girls on Thu 19 Mar. On Sat 21 Mar, Lancaster Arts has People Show 137: God Knows How Many; and CLAY, Leeds has Homos + Houmous

The following week (w/c 23 Mar) Madame Ovary is at Royal Exchange Theatre; Riz Ahmed at Mayfield Depot; BLKDG at The Lowry. Elsewhere, Best of BE  is in Leeds; while David Hoyle is in Hedda in Ormskirk.

Have a good and clean-handed weekend and hope to see you at Idol.
