What’s On in November – Theatre
Eee, it’s bloody brilliant oop ‘ere, int it?
Well, it certainly is as far as theatre is concerned. When we’ve all gotten over Bonfire Night and leaves turning from green to red to ochre to brown then pissing us all off blocking up drains and making lakes everywhere, we can sit back, relax and enjoy these offerings from producing houses and fringe venues across the North.
The hot ticket in Manchester is at the Royal Exchange. The must-see Edinburgh Fringe sell-out is London’s Gate Theatre’s production of Grounded. Finishing on November 8, so, you know, go now. The main house at the Exchange sees a co-production with Royal & Derngate Northampton and Northern Stage of Tennessee Williams’s Cat on a Hot Tin Roof. Keeping with the Great American playwrights, Manchester stages also welcome Sam Shepard. James Baker Productions & Blind Faith Theatre Company’s production of Fool for Love directed by Helen Parry is on at the King’s Arms, November 9-12.
Award-winning Ransack Theatre offers The Dumb Waiter by Harold Pinter for those who missed it first time round (Salford King’s Arms, November 6-15). Eat Theatre brings Shelagh Delaney’s The Lion in Love – its first airing since 1963 – to Salford Arts Theatre, November 19-22. HOME’s visiting company, Riotous Company is sharing its version of Insomnia until November 8 at Manchester’s First Street.
In Leeds at the West Yorkshire Playhouse there is a revival of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Aspects of Love by Leeds Amateur Operatic Society (until November 15), and Kings of England as part of the Compass Festival is on for one night only on November 22.
It’s a brief one this month because this is our inaugural theatre shout-out. If we missed you, we apologise. Send us your links, blogs and press releases and we’ll try our hardest to get everyone mentioned in December.
