The Lawrence Batley Theatre is proud to
announce A FESTIVAL Monday 19 - Saturday 31 March
We are having a festival. It’s about who
we are and things that matter right now. It’s about new ideas,
hearing different voices and celebrating talent.
A FESTIVAL is a snapshot of the amazing creativity in our area, a
chance to see what’s being made, join in with open workshops and
for artists to congregate and collaborate.
We're so excited to present such a vibrant and diverse theatre
festival in Huddersfield and we hope you enjoy it.
We kick off the festival on Monday 19
March with our cosy spoken word and open mic night Queenie's Coffee House Night, followed
by A Scratch Night on
Tuesday 20 March where you can enjoy pie and peas and see
extracts from artists' upcoming work.
Over the Easter weekend we have six exciting performances for you
to enjoy. On Friday 30 March we have Sameena Hussain's Baabul, an autobiographical story
detailing her relationship with her father; Oil and Water – a production about
women, mental illness and religion and This Is Not A Safe Space by acclaimed
poet Jackie Hagan which features a collection of stories from the
real voices of disabled working class people she knows.
On Saturday 31 March HIV+ queer artist Nathaniel Hall presents
the darkly humorous one-man show How To
Build A Cesspit about a life interrupted by fear,
stigma and hatred; Sonya Moorhead performs with live music from
The Greyhounds as she tells the intimate story of her adventure
to be wild in Feral. The
festival closes with Testosterone, an
irreverent comedy by trans man Kit Redstone and Rhum & Clay
featuring physical theatre, a drag diva and hit songs.
Alongside the live programme we also invite you to join us for
series of workshops and events all hosted by artists. These include
Performance Skills for Poets, One Thousand Mindreaders, Voice for
Stage, and An Introduction to Biomechanics.
Tickets for all performances and workshops
go on sale on Friday 23 February at 10am.

Jane Austen is dreaming up Darcy, a proud,
lip-curling handsome creation in very tight pants. But then a door
squeaks, a visitor approaches and Jane hastily hides her work. Mr
Darcy is left dangling. Left to his own devices he embroiders his
own storyline while his creator stitches her quilt.
When she returns she finds Darcy is diving into a lake in a
clinging white shirt, dancing the Berzerka (a more extreme version
of the Masurka) and wrestling carp. ′Britain’s favourite literary
lunatics′, LipService, celebrate the work of Jane Austen with their
own affectionately irreverent tribute; MR DARCY LOSES THE PLOT.
