warnmcr: in orbit, fallen sick or taking a leap...

I'm still somewhat reeling after a mega-Emergency: residual adrenalin conflicting with physical weariness - the only upside is that my relative weirdness makes the general state of the world seem a touch less surreal. Meanwhile, the autumnal festival fandango continues around us:

This weekend Orbit at HOME has YES YES NO NO's The Accident Did Not Take Place(tonight, 27 + tomorrow, 28 Sep) and SH!T Theatre's Drink Rum with ExPats (also til 28 Sep). SICK! Festival has Joanna Rosenfeld's We Need to Talk About Death at The Yard (27 + 28 Sep). Also tomorrow, 28 Sep, Catherine Graindorge's Before The End is at Z-arts; plus there's Hunt & Darton's Radio Local (28 Sep + 5 Oct).
RashDash's Oh Mother! continues at the Royal Exchange Theatre until 12 Oct; while Neal Pike's Five Years is at Theatre Deli, Sheffield, tonight, Fri 27 Sep.

Next week (w/c 30 Sep) unbelievably, Word of Warning is back in action again on Wed 2 Oct with Lauren Hendry's Tetra-Decathlon directed by the very excellent Jenna Watt at The Lowry (which also has Azara Meghie's Just Another Day and Night on Thu 3 Oct). 

In this final week of the Orbit/SICK! head to head, Orbit has Jamal Harewood's Word on Mon 30 Sep + Tue 1 Oct; plus Queens of Sheba (1-5 Oct) + Pizza Shop Heroes (4+5 Oct). SICK! has Theater Degasten + CYC's Baby Fever, 1-3 Oct at STUN; Amy Vreeke's The Year My Vagina Tried to Kill Me, 2 + 3 Oct at the Martin Harris Centre; and Kim Noble's WildLife FM 3 + 4 Oct at Z-arts.

Elsewhere, Company Carpi's The Stumbling Block is at the Arts Centre at Edgehill University on Tue 1 Oct; Avital Raz's My Jerusalem is at the New Continental in Preston on Wed 2 Oct; Dancing with Words is at Kala Sangam, Bradford on Thu 3 Oct;  Louise Orwin's Oh Yes, Oh No is at CLAY, Leeds on Fri 4 Oct; while on Merseyside, LEAP Festival joins the festival-off with New Art Club's Cupid's Revenge on Fri 4 Oct, and Seke Chimutengwende + Alexandrina Hemsley's Black Holes on Sat 5 Oct, both at the Unity Theatre.

The following week (w/c 7 Oct) things quieten down somewhat, though Journeys Festival enters the fray at HOME; while Cade + McCaskill and Ashleigh Owen are in Ormskirk. Dance is the big story with Igor + Moreno at The Lowry,  Rosie Kay + Frances Disley in Liverpool; Gracefool Collective in Leeds; and Russell Maliphant in Lancaster.
For those looking for a further-flung weekend of art, activisim and discussion: IBT's The Summit is in Bristol (11-13 Oct).

I'm off to see if a day of book-keeping will finally drainthe surplus adrenalin - hope to see you at The Lowry on Wednesday for Lauren Hendry's Tetra-Decathlon.
