Running this month as part of their contemporary season, The Lowry stages a selection of new and unique shows guaranteed to captivate audiences with groundbreaking interactive productions and viscerally compelling meditations on the nature of art itself, promising theatre you won’t find anywhere else.

Created by renowned theatre-maker Andy Smith created in collaboration with applied arts practitioner Lynsey O’Sullivan, the new interactive work A Citizen’s Assembly invites the audience to become part of the story with a rousing call to arms in the midst of a growing climate catastrophe. Part of a series of theatre shows called Plays For The People, in which the works are performed by everyone in the room, A Citizen’s Assembly ignites a unifying debate about our ecological duty, and what we as a collective must do to avoid irreversible damage.

Book tickets to the one-off performance on Tue 18 Jan here, and watch the trailer below.

On Wed 24 Jan, the darkly surreal yet profoundly resonant new stage experience If It’s To Break transports audiences on a captivatingly raw odyssey through the artistic process, where the tormented creator collides relentlessly with societal and internal pressures in the agonising pursuit of true fulfilment, as Chris Richards’ original composition provides a fitting soundscape for the artist’s descent into insanity.
