Her Not Him | Theatre503 | 30 Jan-3 Feb
This Bruntwood Prize-longlisted play is the first full length work from writer Joanne Fitzgerald, and the production of it is the first outing for a new company, Lughnacy Productions, set up in 2017 to perform works with a female and LGBTQ focus. The play is about Bea, an older woman who comes out late in life, and the twists and turns of her subsequent relationships. See the venue website here for info and to book.

Moments and Empty Beds | The Hope Theatre | 30 Jan-17 Feb
A double bill of plays from up and coming writer Julia Cranney, brought to you by an established and acclaimed team. ‘Moments’ is about Daniel and Ava, two strangers with little in common who contrive to become unlikely friends. ‘Empty Beds’ focuses on two sisters who generally avoid each other, but are forced to undertake a long journey together, as they visit their brother to celebrate his birthday.

“It’s the future. But only slightly. There are blackouts. No one knows what’s causing them, but that doesn’t stop people going missing in them. Now Steph and Bell, a schoolgirl and barmaid, have to search for their missing friend, until the outside world starts infecting the theatre that stands around them…” This intriguing sounding new play about crisis, darkness, cities and hope comes from Lulu Raczka and Ali Pidsley, in a production supported by West Yorkshire Playhouse and the New Diorama Emerging Companies Fund.
