warnmcr: tiers of a clown (pt2)...

Hi, ho, hi, ho; back to Tier 3 we go - or 3plus as it appears to be - no theatre, no cinema, no restaurants... but you can go shopping... To draw on the govt's rhetoric of cliché, the faint light at the end of the tunnel, sniff of cavalry etc etc is that it's reviewed fortnightly so there's a small chance we might sneak out just in time for everything to close down for the season of corona-giving. 

If you're desperate for a festive show, Six at The Lowry is hanging on in there in hope; or, Chester Storyhouse is due to reopen its xmas show as soon as lockdown lifts (but of course we're urged not o travel from Tier 3 to Tier 2)

Otherwise, it's all online:
This weekend: tonight, Fri 27 Nov, HOME has David Hoyle's A Grand Auction of My Life (Fri 27 Nov) both live; while Homemakers continues.
Ongoing to 4 Dec, Drake Music hosts On The Air - new work from their resident artists including Gareth Cutter's Anxious Mansions
also tonight Fri 27 Nov.
DaDaFest Translations Festival runs online from today, 27 Nov until 2 Dec with a mix of pre-records and discussions, including new work by Chanje KundaAlexandrina HemsleyNicola Smith and many more.
Action Hero are also celebrating 15 years with a series of online commentaires - the first went up yesterday.

Next week: on Mon 30 Nov, HOME has Louise Orwin's Your Favourite Scary Movie;
From 2-4 Dec NSCD has New Ground; while Project Intimacy runs from Leeds Playhouse 6-20 Dec (bookings by 4 Dec).
For the young Contact has Virtual Forest of Forgotten Discos on Sat 5 Dec.

The following week HOME has Seayoncé's Déjà Voodoo Tue 8+ Wed 9 Dec; followed by Sh!t Theatre's Sh!t Actually (12-21 Dec) and, for the young, Le Gateau Chocolat's Duckie (14-23 Dec) (I guess there's a chance the last two might be live after 16 Dec).
MIF has Riz Ahmed's Long Goodbye on Sat 19 Dec (bookings open 1 Dec).

As ever, I'll be back when I spot something to say, as ever keep checking our News + Information page for more pointers to opportunities and show videos online, and @WarnMcr on Twitter for short-notice performances.
