Welcome to Liverpool’s newest fringe theatre in the heart of Liverpool’s theatre district on Hope Street, just a stone’s throw from the Everyman in one direction and the Philharmonic Hall in the other. We have in-house theatre sound and lighting, a two-level stage area and capacity for 100 people in the venue space. There is a bar area selling very reasonably priced drinks. The venue space is available for hire throughout the week and weekend and is very affordable. It is suitable for theatre, dance, comedy, poetry, talking events or acoustic music sets. There are various packages available with the hire depending on when and what you want with additional media support if you want us to cover that. If you’re interested to know more in the first instance contact our Event’s Manager, Mikyla Durkan on 07590458297 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
We have five productions coming this summer, four of which in one way or another look at sexuality and sexual identity and the fourth a classic of socialist literature. We start in June with Bespectacled Theatre’s ‘The Plumbing’ a frank, raw but also comic look at what people get up to in the sexual arena. Following quickly on their heels, we welcome Skint Productions over from Manchester (on their way to Off Broadway, New York, no less) for their LGBTQ comedy ‘Once a Year on Blackpool Sands’, which looks at the quest for sexual identity and acceptance during a working class holiday weekend at Britain’s most famous seaside resort in the 1950s with a communist stripper, a defiant transvestite and six characters battling to express themselves! Then in July we welcome Millennium Theatre to The Casa for John Fletcher’s ‘The Tamer Tamed‘ a hilarious riposte to Shakespeare’s ‘Taming of the Shrew’ in which the misogynistic Petruchio very much finds the table’s turned in his second marriage to Maria. Later in July and leading into Pride weekend, Liverpool’s very own LGBTQ company, Grin Theatre, bring four ‘playlets’ in their annual production ‘Queertet 2018’. Finally in August we have a stage adaptation of Robert Tressell’s classic socialist novel, ‘The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists’.
So whether is brotherly, sisterly, platonic or conjugal love you’re after we have it all at The Casa this summer!
