Studio ORKA: Tuesday at Saint Augustine’s Church, Manchester, 10–21 July 2019, free entry - Find Out More

We recommend snapping up tickets fast for what’s sure to be an extraordinary world premiere by Belgium’s Studio ORKA, one of Europe’s most celebrated theatre companies.

Set within a Grade I listed, majestic Victorian church which has been immortalised in drawings and paintings by LS Lowry, who lived nearby, Tuesday is a show with universal appeal.

An old man now, Tuesday was abandoned in a church when he was a baby. Through the lens of his experiences, the show will reveal how moments of magic and the people and places we encounter on the way, shape all our lives so uniquely.

Live and shared experience at its best

Studio ORKA are renowned for their playful, poetic and breathtaking sets and style. Although some big topics are likely brought to the fore (how do we become the people that we become?), expect a whole lot of laughs, wows and your heart strings to be tugged.

The sort of experiences that Studio ORKA present, aim to open up the power of theatre to all in surprising, new, joyful and inspiring ways.

Aimed at ages eight and above, we are excited that families are not going to be short-changed and can have the boundary-breaking quality of experiences they deserve at such a significant festival.

This is surely going to be live and shared experience at its best.
