HUSH HUSH at The Lowry, Manchester, 26 May 2017, free entry - Visit now

As anyone who has ever visited a café can attest, modern life has too many choices. Skinny or soy? Granary or gluten-free? Cake or croissant? I could go on. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could leave all that to the experts?

Well now, in theatre at least, you can. The Lowry has launched its latest show HUSH HUSH and, as the name suggests, the content is classified; all you have to do is show up and be amazed. It’s rather like a surprise birthday party, without the drawback of relatives you’d rather not see and presents you’d rather not have.

The show could be literally anything: a play about the love-life of penguins, a stand-up set from Jeremy Corbyn, or even a tap-dancing master-class from Theresa May. We simply don’t know. But what we do know is that we trust The Lowry to make this choice for us – after all, they’re the experts.

One final thing: HUSH HUSH is the latest in The Lowry’s Pay What You Decide experiment, meaning you only have to hand over whatever the show is worth to you, whether that’s £10 or 10p.

A risk-free night of surprise theatre? Yes please.
