warnmcr: what's the Emergency score...

So here we are on the eve of the twentieth Emergency - tomorrow Sat 21 Sep at NIAMOS + Z-arts. I genuinely have no idea how many individual works we've shown in a score of outings but it's well over 500. I've always joked that I'll stop it when the event is older than the artists but that's getting perilously close now..! Anyway, the schedules are now online - 21 pieces in the daytime and 13 in the evening - good luck - *I'll* certainly need it!

Also this weekend in Orbit at HOME you can see Paul O'Donnell's We've Got Each Other, tonight Fri 20 Sep; and The Pappy Show Care (20+21 Sep). Elsewhere, in Preston, Derelict Live presents Zuppa's The Archive of Missing Things at the Harris Museum on Sat 21 Sep; and at Lancaster Library on Tue 24 Sep. Chris Thorpe's Status is at the Royal Exchange Theatre (tonight Fri 20 Sep) and at The Holbeck, Leeds on Sun 22 Sep.

Next (w/c 23 Sep) Orbit continues at HOME with LaJohnJoseph's A Generous Lover (24 + 25 Sep). YES YES NO NO's The Accident Did Not Take Place (27 + 28 Sep) and SH!T Theatre's Drink Rum with ExPats (26-28 Sep).  SICK! Festival moves to Hulme with Lara Thoms's The Director at Z-arts (25+26 Sep)Lotte Van Den Berg's Dying Together at STUN (26 + 27 Sep);Joanna Rosenfeld's We Need to Talk About Death at The Yard (27 + 28 Sep); and, on Sat 28 Sep Catherine Graindorge's Before The End at Z-arts; plus Hunt & Darton's Radio Local (28 Sep + 5 Oct).
The Royal Exchange Theatre also has RashDash's Oh Mother! (26 Sep-12 Oct).
Further afield Two Destination Language's Fallen Fruit is at the Arts Centre at Edgehill University on Tue 24 Sep; while Neal Pike's Five Years is at Theatre Deli, Sheffield on Fri 27 Sep.

The following week (w/c 30 Sep) Orbit has Jamal HarewoodQueens of Sheba + Pizza Shop Heroes.  SICK! has Baby FeverAmy Vreeke, and Kim Noble. The Lowry has Azara Meghie.  Elsewhere, Avital Raz is in Preston; Company Carpi in Ormskirk; and Louise Orwin in Leeds. Joining the festival fray, LEAP Festival is in Liverpool with New Art Club and Seke Chimutengwende + Alexandrina Hemsley.

I'm off to start a get-in - or more like 34 get-ins! Hope to see lots of you at Emergency tomorrow, though I'll probably pass you by in a blur!
