HOME has today announced its theatre programme for Spring Summer 2022 featuring a variety of brand-new co-commissions, world and UK premieres as well as new interpretations of cult classics and returning artists.

HOME Spring Summer 2022

The ambitious, co-produced season includes shows that challenge and explore our perception of identity and self-reflection. The season features seven co-productions including a new adaptation of award-winning book The House with Chicken Legs, rock musical Hedwig & the Angry Inch, returning favourites RashDash with Oh Mother and Jamal Gerald’s JUMBIE.

Priority ticket booking will be available for HOME Friends from Thursday 2 December, and HOME Members from Friday 3 December with tickets on sale to the general public from Monday 6 December. There will also be an exclusive Early Bird 15% discount for all tickets purchased before 15 January 2022.

Dave Moutrey, Director and CEO of HOME, said: “I’m delighted to be announcing such an exciting programme of contemporary theatre for 2022. Presenting a season of such high-quality co-commissions and co-productions is a true reflection of HOME’s approach to collaboration and it is a huge pleasure to be working with such incredible partners and talented artists from across the North West and nationally. There is a huge diversity of work across the programme, which give us the opportunity to welcome a wide range of audiences to HOME – to be entertained, to reflect, to be challenged and to find hope and joy.”

Theatre 1

Opening on 29 March and running throughout the Easter holidays, pioneering theatre company Les Enfants Terribles will be bringing their new adaptation of Sophie Anderson’s best-selling The House with Chicken Legs to the stage. Suitable for older families and adults alike, the beautiful story will be told through a blend of live music, puppetry and a sprinkle of magic.

Multi-Tony award-winning cult musical Hedwig & the Angry Inch starring Divina de Campo runs from 27 Apr to 11 May, for a sensational night of rock ‘n’ roll and a story of self-acceptance and empowerment – all accompanied by a live band. Fresh from its European premiere, HOME presents Claudia Rankine’s first published play The White Card, directed by Natalie Ibu, which poses the question: ‘can society progress when whiteness remains invisible?’ From 22 to 25 June, internationally celebrated choreographer Hofesh Shechter returns with thrilling contemporary dance production Double Murder – a double bill, performed by his inimitable dancers and accompanied by an epic score.

Theatre 2

Black queer enterprise Dudaan, with founder and director, Jamal Gerald, presents its inaugural production JUMBIE (23-26 Mar) – an immersive and contemporary exploration of a lost dance ritual from the Caribbean island of Montserrat. Much-loved company RashDash return to Theatre 2 from 12 to 28 May, with their new show Oh Mother, exploring what it means to be, and to have, a family. Dorcas Seb concludes the season with Vice Versa (1-2 Jul), an innovative, immersive show exploring one woman’s political awakening through music, spoken word, movement and digital story telling.
