Our Town at the Royal Exchange Theatre.


A bona fide American classic, Our Town tells the story of Emily and George, two unremarkable teenagers growing up in a small New Hampshire town at the turn of the last century. You’re invited to eavesdrop on this tightly wound community as events unfold – both the apparently trivial and the deeply profound – across the course of a decade. Rich with detail and shot through with a distinctive mix of light and shade, Thornton Wilder’s Pulitzer Prize-winning smalltown epic of human existence remains as theatrically fresh and as topical as ever: Our Town, but also, unmistakably, yours. Directed by Sarah Frankcom.


Then We Are Ian at Home.


1989. Manchester. The year that everything changed from black and white into crazy technicolour. A frenzy of drugs, beats and bucket hats. Illegal raves. Acid parties. Just jumping up and down in a field and throwing two fingers to Thatcher… Remember it? Ian does. So, we’re going back to 1989. We’re gonna get off our peanuts. We’re gonna bounce around like idiots. And Ian’s going to show us how. We’re mad ‘fer it. And you will be too. Let’s party. We Are Ian is about Ian, who was around in the late 80s and early 90s Acid House scene in Manchester. The show is made from recordings of real conversations and scored by tracks from the era.
