warnmcr: stormforce...

As the winds of change blow through the cabinet office and Ciara leaves, trailing Dennis in its wake, Word of Warning bids farewell to the barnstormer that was Harry Clayton-Wright. While my own travel plans feel ill-advised, this weekend, if you fancy a bit of blustery travel, the very excellent Vincent Gambini's This Is Not A Magic Show is at the Capstone Theatre, Liverpool Hope University, tonight Fri 14 Feb. If you want to brave the Pennines, in Bradford there's the Right Queer, Right Now Weekender (Thu 13-Sun 16 Feb) including Vijay Patel, The Gloop Show + Nathaniel Hall (nb weekend wristbands only); while in York there's A Taste of SLAP on Sat 15 Feb (check first as quite a bit is sold-out).

Next week (w/c 17 Feb) in parts Mancunian all seems quite - though you might try Thick & Tight's Romancing The Apocalypse at The Lowry on Mon 17 Feb. Further afield, in Liverpool Imitating the Dog's Night of the Living Dead is at the Everyman + Playhouse (18-22 Feb not Thu 20 nb coming to HOME in March), while Alexis Teplin's It's My Pleasure To Participate is at The Bluecoat on Sat 22 Feb. 
In Lancaster, Liz Lea's Red is at Lancaster Arts on Wed 19 Feb and Nathaniel Hall's First Time is at The Dukes on Tue 18 + Wed 19 Feb.

The following week (w/c 24 Feb) by contrast, it all goes just a touch bonkers! In Mancunia, Help! I think I might be fabulous is at New Adelphi, Made In China at The Royal Exchange Theatre; Bourgeois + Maurice at HOME; and of course there's Word of Warning's take on a Thursday Late: Emergency StopGap at NIAMOS. Elsewhere, Talent Hub and Nikki + JD  are in Lancaster; Search Party in Preston, DaDaFest Scratch in Liverpool; plus New Queers Weekenderwith Oozing GloopJackie Hagan + Mandla Rae in Blackpool.

I've just freaked myself out by mentioning StopGap already (programme online now), so I guess I'd better go and get on with making it happen!
