Contact Autumn Season 2017

Andrew Anderson

Contact’s got a sharp new look, including a new website and logo. However, what makes Contact a special place remains the same: it’s a theatre space open to all, where voices of every timbre can be heard.

There are almost too many highlights to mention across the season, so let’s keep it simple and start at the beginning with We’re Not Really Here: a Football Opera, which sees real-life Man City fans take to the stage (but don’t let that put you off). That is quickly followed up by dance work #JeSuis (In Progress), choreographed by rising star Aakash Odedra.

There’s also plenty of cabaret on offer across the season. Peaches Christ and RuPaul’s Drag Race winner Jinkx Monsoon return with a crazy recreation of Hocus Pocus titled Hocum Pokem, while Le Gateau Chocolat offers Duckie, his first ever kids’ show. Local legend Kate O’Donnell is also in the programme with new work You’ve Changed.

Finally, The Siege of Christmas returns for a second run, a brilliant way to close out the year – and far more fun than a boring old panto.
