Sunday 8 June – Monday 9 June   

PUFFBALL – a new show which fuses storytelling and beautiful circus skills – comes to Manchester’s Royal Exchange Theatre from Sunday 8 June to Monday 9 June.   

Presented by the Royal Exchange in partnership with the Roundhouse (London), Contact Theatre (Manchester) and Cast (Doncaster), the production has been devised by a company of professional circus artists and young people, all of whom identify as LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or questioning) in collaboration with renowned director Mark Storor.
Inspired by personal stories that are exhilarating, heartbreaking, devastating and joyful, the show is a culmination of a major year-long project working with young people from towns and cities across the UK.

The production - set to a live score by award-winning composer Jules Maxwell – builds on th success of THE FAT GIRL GETS A HAIRCUT AND OTHER STORIES, the Roundhouse’s groundbreaking production created in collaboration with Mark Storor and a cast of 12 to 17-year-olds.   

Audiences are also invited to MOTHER’S RUIN: PUFFBALL CABARET – a raucous late-night post-show entertainment staged each night in the Great Hall – which is presented by the Royal Exchange and Contact in association with Cake Tin Foundation and Rude Girl. ds/
