OUR FANTASTIC PROGRAMME FOR NOVEMBER & DECEMBER HAS SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE.
Saturday 16th November 2019
We are thrilled that our first show is a charity fund-raiser for Cancer Research UK @cr_uk.
Imagine this: 6 writers, 6 directors, 6 casts of actors and 1 day in which to produce something wonderful! Sound amazing? Well, it is : A Play-In-A-Day!
With this brilliant format, Fight Like A Girl has already raised several thousand pounds for Cancer Research UK, so this will be another opportunity for us all to support a charity that is close to all our hearts.

WACKY HORO SHOW and Viaduct Theatre present a musical evening of Balkanalia and Klezmerica featuring Levenshulme's finest brass and reed big band, LEVVY METAL, supported by GOOD HABITS, performing Nu-Folk and Yiddish Theatre songs.
If Klezmer is new to you, just think of a big Jewish wedding with music that celebrates and gets you on your feet with its Eastern European rhythms and lots of clarinets and brass.
Thursday 21st November 2019
The Lipstick Thespians present Up The Bunting, written by Stephen Donald and directed by Alexis Tuttle.
Colin loves the local village fete, but this year
things are different! Where has hook-a duck gone?
Beneath the bunting things are…CHANGING! Colin is about to have an encounter with Lisa, a Reiki healer.
This is a deeply moving piece of theatre, with great pathos, and many moments of laugh out loud comedy.

Fresh from 4-star success at the Edinburgh Fringe 2019, Time Will Tell theatre company bring their honest portrayal of the effects of dementia on one family. Writing from her own experience as a personal carer, Gill McVey presents a play which never fails to entertain although it deals with such a serious topic. Some of the story is based on the writer’s own life experience and some is based on conversations she had and overheard while working with other carers and service users.
Saturday 14th December 2019 @ 7.30pm
Actress/writer Caroline Burns Cooke – creator of And the Rope Still Tugging Her Feet (Argus Angel for Outstanding Theatre and Outstanding Individual Performer at Prague Fringe) and Proxy (Infallibles Award nominee for Outstanding Theatre and Ike Award winner for Best Solo Show) – returns with her third show to examine the life of glamorous 70's sitcom legend Yootha Joyce.
Adored by friends and fans alike, hiding acute alcoholism from those closest to her, lighting up the screen as Mildred Roper in Man about the House and George and Mildred, she died at the height of her fame at only 53.
Could have been worse. Could have been a wet Wednesday at Rhyl Rep.
‘Burns Cooke is a superb actress…a play that transcends its subject’. The Wee Review****
‘A warm and interactive performance that tugs at the heart strings’. Edinburgh Evening News ****
‘A consummate performer and a fitting tribute to an icon’. One4Review****
