The Manchester Project at Christmas at HOME Manchester, Manchester, 5–21 December 2019, from £20.00 - Book now

Following the success of The Manchester Project at HOME’s Push Festival and the National Theatre’s Riverstage in 2018, Monkeywood Theatre return to HOME for a special Christmas edition of their popular production.

The Manchester Project at Christmas will feature 12 festive short new plays written by some well-known Mancunian writers, performed by Manchester actors.

Every evening there will be brand new micro-plays by new and returning writers including Sarah McDonald Hughes, Ian Kershaw, Reuben Johnson, Chris Hoyle, Chris Thorpe, Louise Wallwein, Keisha Thompson, Andrew Sheridan, Eve Steele, Cathy Crabb and Furquan Akhtar. From Wythenshawe to Timperley, from Chorlton to Middleton, each will write about the part of our city which they call home.

The perfect night out to get you in the Christmas swing of things.

The performance will take residence in HOME’s exhibition gallery throughout the month of December – the perfect night out to get you in the Christmas swing of things – whether you’re a Manc, an honorary Manc or just visiting Manchester. The evening will also include a cabaret performance and a pop-up bar.

Depending on the evening, audiences will be treated to either cabaret from Ho Ho Holiday Comedy Hour (Monday-Wednesday), or Miss Blair’s Christmas TV Special (Thursday-Saturday).

Featuring Barbara Nice, Josh Jones, Nina Gilligan, Lukas Kirby, Allyson June Smith, Danny Sutcliff, Amy Gledhill and Silky, The Ho Ho Holiday Comedy Hour promises to kick-start the Christmas hilarities. Alternatively, join Manchester’s finest drag queen and hostess Miss Blair in her sitting room for a good old fashioned shindig, and to celebrate some of our favourite British TV personalities.

A beautiful tapestry of Northern voices, exploring the meaning of Christmas.

The Manchester Project will offer a perfectly ‘grown-up’ advent countdown to the big day – a beautiful tapestry of Northern voices, exploring the meaning of Christmas – followed by a chocolate box of comedy and drag.
