Unity Theatre reveals new Autumn season shows


The Unity Theatre has unveiled the remainder of its autumn season of shows.

Festival events for DaDa, Homotopia and BlackFest will be staged at the Hope Place venue while there are also visits planned from companies like Paines Plough, Dibby Theatre and Lung.

Ten new productions are being programmed through the theatre’s Open Call initiative which was launched at the height of the pandemic to support the city’s creative community.

And many of the shows will be screened online for people as part of the Unity’s commitment to access and safety. People can watch for a special ‘pay-what-you-can’ rate.

Productions supported by the Open Call initiative include Katy-Anne Bellis’s Over The Garden Wall, running as an online experience from September 20-26, Phone Home by RAWD on September 29 (which is also supported by the Everyman and Playhouse), The B Collective and Theatre Témoin’s Routes - an outdoor interactive promenade show - on October 8-9, and Elaine Collins’ DDDivas on November 19.

BlackFest presents Hip Hop Dance for All on August 5, while Tom Kinney’s September 18 show A Heavenly Way to Die is part of the theatre’s Up Next Weekender.

Manchester-based Dibby Theatre brings First Time to the Unity on October 21, Paines Plough returns to Liverpool with Sessions on October 25 and LUNG’s Who Cares plays on November 18 and 19.
