Unity Theatre Presents ‘Omnibus’ 8pm -Sat 17th June

A raucous evening of entertainment brought to life in a sizzling new stage World Premier play by the winner of the prestigious Hope Playwriting Prize.

This play is the perfect night out for people who like laughing. It’s funny, shamelessly brash and a little bit rude but certainly good enough for your granny!

Beginning, with the scene of a typical afternoon in a shared house. One in the kitchen getting the roast on, two on the sofa watching the omnibus and one on the floor having a few wines. The biggest decision that needs to be made is when to put the roasties in. Yes, but, the one who is cooking can’t cook. And the one drinking the wine shouldn’t really drink. And the ones watching the telly were definitely not expecting the drama they were watching to come to life.
Yes, come to life!
This is a smooth and powerful production with a tangled web of deception being unearthed throughout the night. Is anyone who they say they are? And how far will they go to keep their secret?

A daring, audacious and sublimely, riotously funny play from this Royal Court Liverpool, in association with Unity Theatre production, that prompts gales of laughter during this two hour evening performance.

Forget boring night telly, and check-out this clever show, pushing the boundaries of comedy and join Mark, Lauren, Neil and sexy stupid Jess in a fast moving comedy about modern life, relationships and prize nutcases with guns.

You will love this rip-roaring play which makes for hilarious viewing in this modern, newly refurbished truly electrifying Unity Theatre.

A true gem of a production by Katie Mulgrew and directed by Robert Farquhar.

‘happy hour’ and the power of the smile!

An evening of fast paced comedy awaits you when you visit the Unity theatre this weekend!

Tmesis Theatre, the physical theatre that brought us ‘physical fest’ and the wildly acclaimed successful ‘That’s Amore’ production, is back with another Tmesis triumph.

This new comedy, explores our 21st century obsession with happiness and success.
Can we learn to be happy? And can our emotions be bought and sold?
The ‘happiness industry’ would have us think so…..

Enjoy this 60 minute non-stop performance for what will be an unforgettable night of feel-good comedy. Re-live the workers nightmare on Level 3 as they race against the clock to reach their targets of Smiley Faces.

This play is full of energy and great entertainment that keeps you engaged with their continuous vibrant on stage antics. Take a seat this weekend and awe in wonder as the consequences of the workers ‘happy hour’ actions become as tragic as they are hilarious.

This is a wickedly warming, brutally honest and heart-breaking raunchy exposition of a production, showing all the pitfalls of emotions intertwined with the often fractious friendships in the workplace.

Don’t miss this roller-coaster of a performance that leaves you questioning ‘happiness’ but captures the glimmer of ‘happiness’ and the potential that lies in all of us.

A play that boasts explosive action, exploring power, desire and love…..a play with certainly plenty of action!
