Starring RuPaul's Drag Race USA Superstars Willam & Ra'Jah O'Hara & Drag Race UK Star Vinegar Strokes. Reprising her West End star turn Holly Stars. Following rave reviews at London's Garrick Theatre, the fabulous killer comedy and smash hit sold-out sensation Death Drop will be sashaying across the UK on tour this autumn.

Described by Attitude as a “killer show” and ”rollicking good fun” by The Guardian, the UK tour will star Ru-Paul USA drag legends Willam and Ra’Jah O’Hara and Drag Race UK star Vinegar Strokes who reprises her originating West End role, together with Holly Stars and a full cast of leading drag performers. Written by Holly Stars, this "dazzling and delightfully camp comedy" is "jam-packed with hilarious one lin-ers" and guaranteed to provide laugh-out-loud comedy that we all need right now. This show is like nothing you’ve seen on tour in the UK ever before! Willam said: Vinegar Strokes said: Holly Stars said: TuckShop Creative Director and Producer Christopher D. Clegg said: It’s 1991 and a gaggle of guests gather on Tuck Island for a soirée like no other. The tension rises as the outrageous guests reveal their suspicious and sordid pasts, and one by one they sashay away, until at the last, nerve-shredding, side-splitting moment the surviving guests find out who-dunnit! This rampant, raucous, ridiculous romp of a murder mystery serves up all the drama, comedy, twists and turns you’ll ever need!

  2. Olivier and Tony Award-winning producer David Pugh, the renowned theatre company Told by an Idiot and Theatre Royal Bath Productions present the Silent Comedy CHARLIE & STAN. It will run at The Lowry in Salford from Monday 13 - Saturday 18 September. In 1910, the then unknown Charlie Chaplin and Stan Laurel set sail on board a tramp steamer from Liverpool to New York as part of Fred Karno’s famous music hall troupe. On the voyage, they shared a cabin, they shared comedy routines, they shared laughter, but, by the end of the journey, they hated each other... yet they would both go on to become two of the biggest stars of the age. Inspired by real life events, Told by an Idiot’s acclaimed production of CHARLIE & STAN is the remarkable story of the greatest comedy double act that nearly was. With an original piano score played live at every performance, CHARLIE & STAN is a hilarious and deeply moving homage to two men who changed the world of comedy forever. Told by an Idiot have garnered critical acclaim and devoted audiences worldwide for their wonderfully theatrical shows. With CHARLIE & STAN they have uncovered a hidden and poignant chapter of comedy history, shining an unusual light on a pair of show business legends. CHARLIE & STAN is directed by Paul Hunter and designed by Ioana Curelea, with lighting design by Aideen Malone, video design by Dom Baker, original piano score by Mercury Award nominee Zoe Rahman and song arrangement by Sophie Cotton. Jos Houben is physical comedy consultant and dance choreography is by Nuna Sandy for ZooNation: The Kate Prince Company. CHARLIE & STAN is from an idea by Irene Cotton, with additional material from the company. CHARLIE & STAN is produced by David Pugh, Told by an Idiot and Theatre Royal Bath Productions. CHARLIE & STAN was originally produced by Told by an Idiot and Theatre Royal Plymouth, in association with Royal & Derngate Northampton and Unity Theatre Liverpool.
  3. Zog is roaring into Salford this weekend - with performances at The Lowry on Sat 3 & Sun 4 July. The smash hit stage adaptation from Freckle Productions (the team behind Stick Man and Tiddler and Other Terrific Tales) is flying across the UK and promises to be bigger, brighter and more roar-some than ever before. With lively songs from Joe Stilgoe and directed by Emma Kilbey, Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s much-loved Zog is a magical production for all ages. Large in size, and keen in nature, Zog is so eager to win a golden star at Madam Dragon’s school, where dragons learn all the things that dragons need to know. Zog tries so very hard, perhaps too hard, and he bumps, burns and roars his way through years one, two and three. Luckily, the plucky Princess Pearl patches him up ready to face his biggest challenge yet…a duel with knight, Sir Gadabout the Great! Zog was first published in 2010 and won the Galaxy National Children’s Book of the Year Award. It has gone on to become a perennial bestseller. On Christmas Day 2018, Magic Light Pictures premiered an animated film of Zog on BBC One featuring an all-star cast, following their award-winning films The Gruffalo, Room on the Broom and Stick Man. Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler are the UK’s number one picture book pair and are creators of many modern classics, including The Gruffalo which is in 75 languages. The 2021 cast features Billy Mahoney as Zog, Lois Glenister as Princess Pearl, Benedict Hastings as Sir Gadabout, Asha Cornelia Cluer as Madam Dragon and Danielle Whittaker in various roles. The cast of actor-puppeteers bring the world of Zog to life with handcrafted puppets designed and created by Little Angel Theatre co-founder Lyndie Wright. Zog is directed by Emma Kilbey with songs by Joe Stilgoe. It is designed by Katie Sykes with lighting design by Ric Mountjoy, puppetry design by Lyndie Wright and orchestrations and musical direction by Paul Herbert.

Musical Rewrites will run from Tue 8 to Thu 10 June in the Salford venue’s 1700-seat Lyric Theatre.

  5. The Lowry has announced details of five new companies and projects that will be supported with £50,000 worth of investment through its Live Now commissioning programme. They are: Limbik Theatre, Yewande 103, Swamp Motel, Dante or Die and Nigel Barrett & Louise Mari and Kerry Underhill. The commissions have been selected from 224 submissions following a national open-call for the scheme – which explores what online performance can offer audiences following the re-opening of venues. Each company will receive £10,000 to create a new show that will be shared through The Lowry’s digital programme over the next year. Claire Symonds, senior producer for artist development at The Lowry, said: Nigel Barrett & Louise Mari and Kerry Underhill will create Mystery Trip, an epic digital excursion for live audiences this November. “We don’t know what we’re doing. We don’t know where we're going. But we do know that we need to get out of here. Come with us.” Limbik Theatre’s Voice Thief is a live immersive audio experience for audiences at home. Through assorted technological shenanigans, the show transforms each audience member into the protagonist of a quirky existential thriller, on a quest to reclaim their voice from a Mr Hyde-like doppelgänger. Dante or Die’s Odds On is a new digital production that submerges you into the world of Honey Money - a garish online gambling site. Dante or Die are experimenting with creative technologists to create an episodic, online theatrical experience. Audiences will follow an older woman through the gambling site's lens; peering through her screen as she spends more & more time consumed by racking up the ‘Honey Money’. Commissioning Partners: Ideas Test, South Street Reading, Farnham Maltings, New Popular, and in partnership with National Problem Gambling Clinic. Yewande 103’s The Fountain is a new, visually striking CGI screendance. Building on Alexandrina’s choreographic and written investigations into the transformative qualities of water, this multidisciplinary work explores the systemic histories of water; somehow inseparable from autobiographical, embodied tides of experience. Working with a small group of artists, the choreography centres felt enquiry; offering up a mirage of a fountain designed to undo fixed gazes. Co-commissioned by Cambridge Junction. Swamp Motel’s The Elevator (working title) is an immersive interactive film. A man lies dead in the lobby of a prestigious hotel. His killer has locked themselves in one of the elevators. You are drafted in to negotiate his release, investigate his motive, and protect the public. Every choice is yours to make. Every decision has consequences. The Lowry has, this week, began a phased re-launch of its face-to-face programme following the latest round of lockdown easing. Outdoor performances have resumed, the art centre’s galleries re-open on Saturday (22 May) and socially distanced indoor performances begin on Sun 30 May.

From Saturday, 22 May, the galleries will re-open at weekends, with two exhibitions on offer: the permanent LS Lowry: The Art & The Artist and a physical display of the online Days Like These exhibition, which tells the story of Salfordians experiences of lockdown using paintings, photographs, films and poetry. The first indoor, socially distanced performance will take place on Sunday, 30 May as comedian Michael Spicer brings The Room Next Door to the venue’s Lyric Theatre. Following this, Northern Ballet will present Dangerous Liaisons from Tuesday 1 – Saturday 5 June.

  7. Jason Manford is set to perform an un-rehearsed, one-man show at The Lowry this Saturday (13 March) as part of a global event to mark the anniversary of lockdown. The show, White Rabbit Red Rabbit by Aurora Nova and Nassim Soleimanpour, is one of the most widely performed plays in the world – having been translated into over 30 languages and performed by some of the most respected actors in the business. Joining that prestigious line-up, Manford will be handed the script live on-stage and will immediately perform the text to an audience watching at home on Zoom. Tickets for the one-off performance are £10 per household, with all proceeds being donated to The Lowry’s ‘Emergency Appeal’, a fund set-up in March 2020 to help support the Salford charity through the Coronavirus pandemic.

  9. Happy Christmas from The Lowry: Arts centre to live-stream performance of The Gruffalo to EVERY primary school in Salford The Lowry in Salford has announced plans to live-stream a performance of Tall Stories’ hit show The Gruffalo into every primary school in the city. The performance, which will take place at 1.30pm on Friday, 11 December, will be available free of charge to all 99 primary schools in the city. The first 50 schools to register for the special broadcast will also receive £50 worth of art supplies for their school as a gift from Alison & Noel Copley, patrons of the art centre’s Copley Prize for children. Julia Fawcett OBE, chief executive of The Lowry, said: “COVID-19 has caused untold disruption to the academic year and the wellbeing of millions of children– not least of all the opportunity for children to come together to experience live theatre. “Had it not been for the pandemic, we would have expected to welcome some 15,000 children to our building this year – visiting one of our theatres, galleries or taking part in our Learning programme. “By live-streaming this performance exclusively to Salford primary schools, free of charge, we hope to bring a bit of Christmas cheer to more than 10,000 children across Salford.” The Lowry worked with Salford City Council to contact all primary schools in the city. Any schools wishing to discuss the broadcast should contact: GetCreative@thelowry.com The Gruffalo had been scheduled to run on The Lowry’s Lyric Theatre stage from Friday, 12 December to Sunday, 10 January, but has been forced online in light of the impracticalities of widespread touring during the pandemic. The Lowry is currently closed in-line with the national lockdown. Live performances are due to resume on Friday, 4 December and the galleries are due to re-open (weekends only) from Saturday, 5 December. Both dates are dependent on the Government announcement on Thursday (26 Nov) of regional tiers and what level will be applied to Greater Manchester.
