Major LGBTQ content in line up for HOME MCR new season

Major LGBTQ content in line up for HOME MCR new season

HOME have today announced the return of live theatre to their building for the first time in 10 months with an Autumn Winter season featuring over 30 shows including Rhum and Clay’s The War of the Worlds, The Lemon Table, starring Ian McDiarmid, and a new adaptation of Christie Watson’s NHS memoir, The Language of Kindness.

The season also includes festivals of new work and digital commissions delivered on a specially commissioned online platform, Homescreen. 

As well as shows that missed their chance to appear at HOME due to Covid, the season includes new commissions from North West, national and international artists and the return of some HOME favourites, including Bourgeois and Maurice, Le Gateau Chocolat and Hofesh Shechter.

Dave Moutrey, Director and CEO of HOME, said: “I’m absolutely delighted to announce the return of live theatre to our building, following a very long 10 months during which our theatres have been closed to the public due to coronavirus. We were absolutely determined to give artists whose work had been cancelled or postponed at the start of the pandemic the chance to bring their shows to the stage, and I’m pleased to say that many of the works appearing this season are among those we were planning to host last year. As well as honouring our commitments to those artists, our programming team have also found great new work, which I know HOME audiences will love".

The Christmas season will start on 3 and 4 December with A Queeriosity Family Christmas as Merry Matriarchs Donna Trump and Narcissa Nightshade welcome audiences for a very camp Christmas party. Then from 15 December there’s festive family theatre with Duckie, a charming take on the classic Hans Christian Andersen tale The Ugly Duckling, exploring the beauty of difference (until 23 December).
