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.

LIPSERVICE THEATRE
MR DARCY LOSES THE PLOT

Tickets £15 - £10 / Under 26s £8 / Kirklees Passport holders £3 off

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.
