warnmcr: early april fool...

As we pass the third anniversary of Lockdown 1 and our former clown in chief stages his comeback with a rendition of Party Fears II, the rest of us wonder when the joke will be over. Meanwhile...
This weekend, Rory Aaron's This Town is already sold out at Contact; while Yusra Warsama's Of All The Beautiful Things In The World starts its run at HOME (until 6 Apr); and Synagogue Scratch (26 Mar - 23 Apr) kicks off at Manchester Jewish Museum. In Liverpool, Izzie Major's Curtains, Curtains, Curtains, Curtains, Curtains is at the Cornerstone Theatre on Sun 26 Mar.

Next week (w/c 27 Mar) I haven't spotted much additional in Mancunia, but Avant Garde Dance's Illegal Dance is at Storyhouse, Chester on Tue 28 Mar; Black Sheep is at the Drama Studio in Sheffield on Wed 29 Mar. In Liverpool, the Capstone Theatre has Jo Fong + George Orange's The Rest of Our Lives on Wed 29 Mar and Whispered Tales' Release on Fri 31 Mar; while Top Joe's Spring Mass is at the Everyman also on Fri 31 Mar. Balbir Singh's Reflections of an Indian Dancer is at Leeds Playhouse on Sat 1 Apr. Much further afield Buzzcut Festival is happening in Glasgow 3o Mar- 1 Apr.

The following weeks (w/c 3 + 10 Apr) see the Easter slow-down and the only new things I've spotted are Rowena Gander's Barely Visible Thu 6 Apr and Saphena Aziz's Martha, Me and My Family on 14 Apr both at the Unity in Liverpool; and Forget About the Dog's Happy Place at the Duke's in Lancaster on Thu 13 Apr.
As ever, there's also Unity Online; and there's Lowry Digital, HOMESCREEN + Sadlers Wells Digital Stage and the Word of Warning YouTube.

This mail is going to take a couple of weeks break for Easter, so will be back when I've spotted a bit more to talk about!
