Lowry favourites Ad Infinitum (Bucket List, Light, Translunar Paradise) are back for Queer Contact 19, Manchester’s number-one LGBTQ+ theatre festival, which runs over the first week of February at various venues around Manchester and Salford – and a real highlight is the latest production from the Bristol-based international ensemble, No Kids. This high energy comedy (with a heart of gold) was Ad Infinitum’s contribution to the most recent Edinburgh Festival Fringe picking up ‘best of’ and ‘must-see’ reviews in the national press. It has been written by and stars the company’s co-artistic directors themselves – real-life same-sex couple Nir Paldi and George Mann – and is a fun-packed physical comedy pondering whether or not the pair should pursue the idea of having children. Renowned for their thought-provoking storytelling, expect a hilarious and moving tale, aptly described as ‘We Need To Talk About Kevin on acid’ (Total Theatre). In the play, George and Nir embark on an emotional rollercoaster as they try to answer a question many couples face with tenderheartedness and humour – and you’re invited along for the ride.
Fri 1 Feb, The Lowry, Pier 8, The Quays, Salford, M50 3AZ, Tel: 0843 208 6000, 8pm, £10-15, www.thelowry.com
