‘Meek’ @Headlong Theatre at Unity till Sat 15th Sep

A not so holy story of ruthless state control that will have you hooked at the very first. A play of friendship and one woman’s determination not to be broken.

In this uncanny, high definition world, we are all more connected, more vulnerable and more human- but not equally so. This play shows how a small act of resistance can lead to a political revolution.

‘Meek’ is a tale which explores the line between religion, politics and the power of social media. A talented group of actors to watch, showing raw emotions. This play is a candid, uninhibited and emotional visceral act, with an intimate tender portrait of friendship, hurt and loss.

I was fixated by this new blend of dramatic theatre, of geopolitics and religion that catches the still sad voice of humanity. It’s a play that leads to questions and conversations, which have been incorporated with a post-show discussion.
‘Meek’ is certainly a play that reflects on our own fraught times giving the audience a roller coaster of tension and adrenaline, of nervousness and intrigue, drawing you in deeper and deeper right until the sting at the end.

This is a must to see, with a Sat Mat 2pm.
‘Meek’ by Penelope Skinner, a Fringe First Winner and directed by Amy Hodge gives the audience a play that’s very much of our times.
It just might change the way you think!

Tonight!!!! 4pm and 7pm at the Unity Theatre

Tonight ‘Little Red and the Big Bad Wolf’ returns for another spell of frothbuggling family fun. This high energy physical theatre performance, suitable for ages 5-105, brings sheer bliss from beginning to end!

It takes you deep into the wood where you embark on a journey of love, loss and self-discovery.

Right from the beginning young and old are immersed into a frantic, energy fuelled production of dance, music, drama and storytelling.

You are invited into this enchanted wood and driven on a roller-coaster of emotions. You consider your own personal journey of unknown versus the safety and familiarity of the path and how irresistible straying can be.

The evenings experience will give you an insight as well as the tensions between mankind and nature.

This is a bold entertaining story of the well known classic tale, packing a punch that all will enjoy.
This production is for one night only but you can catch it later at the Whitby Hall Ellesmere Port 24th Jan and at St Helens Citadel 11th Feb. This is a great outing for all the family to enjoy.

But remember….. are the wolves really the villains in a world were the woodcutter is destroying the forest? And…..is Grandma the trophy hunter really sick?

Don’t stop to smell the flowers, or sing to the birds or climb a tree, remember these words……
and make your way tonight to Liverpool’s Unity Theatre. (0151 709 4988) Enjoy!
