Queer performance platform Mother’s Ruin returns to the Royal Exchange in October for another edition of the group’s regular ‘new work’ offshoot, Mother’s Bloomers. The event takes place in The Studio, the Theatre’s intimate 90-seat space which is for innovative works and showcases for the next generation of theatre makers. This night certainly fits the bill, as it’s a show featuring local LGBTQ alternative artists who are presenting new and boundary pushing works. There will be 10 short pieces from, among others, The Three Ladies, Victoria Firth, Nathaniel Hall, and Patrick Hollis. Host is former Manchester Wire writer, Fat Roland who is (obviously) one of the most sparkling, funny and brilliant comperes in the region. Mother’s Bloomers is supported by Contact Theatre and the Cake Tin Foundation – a charity which provides funding for new and emerging LGBTQ theatre talent.

Sat 20 Oct, The Royal Exchange, St. Ann’s Square, Manchester, M2 7DH, Tel: 0161 833 9833, 7.30pm, £8/6, www.royalexchange.co.uk
