‘The most ambitious theatre in Liverpool...’ The Guardian

Thank you! unitytheatre has always had a place at the centre of our community as a friendly, welcoming place where you can see something a bit weird, a bit unexpected and perhaps even be surprised. But without you, our audience, we are just an empty building. We need your interaction, feedback and desire to use us to ensure that we continue to serve you for years to come. We’d love to get your opinions, thoughts and views. If you want to try running yoga classes one day a week, think we should sell cheap tea and coffee during the day, or should offer acting classes for over 60s then let us know. Either pop in and leave us a note, if we’re around have a chat or drop us a comment on our website. Together we’re stronger. Marking the centenary of the Liverpool general strike, St George’s Plateau riots, and the first exhibition outside of France by Picasso and Matisse at the Bluecoat, we are joining other artists and organisations in 2011’s City of Radicals celebration. Prepare for events popping up in likely and unlikely places with unity [with our own roots in the radical labour and unity movement] hosting some fantastic thought-provoking events. Enjoy.

Spring Awakening

Wednesday 2 to Saturday 5 February

“…how will we know what to do if our parent’s don’t tell us?” A new production of the acclaimed Tony and Olivier award winning rock musical bursting with energy and passion. Innocence corrupted, emotions fraught and the shattered dreams of youth. Teenage friends discover sexuality against a background of confused emotional maturity and emerging adult responsibilities. Lacking guidance from parents or teachers will their limited knowledge have disastrous consequences? One of the most controversial musicals ever written, based on Frank Wedekind’s censored and at times banned play, Spring Awakening contrasts the strict society of 19th

century Germany with witty dialogue and a punchy, upbeat contemporary soundtrack. Not to be missed! Recommended for mature audiences. An amateur production by What We Did Next Book and lyrics by Steven Sater. Music by Duncan Sheik. Find out more at This amateur production is by arrangement with Josef Weinberger Limited.

And The Horse You Rode In On


Tuesday 22 to Saturday 26 March The press on Told by an Idiot ‘… their work is admirable and uncommonly powerful.’ The Times ***** ‘Told By An Idiot have a hit on their hands.’ The Guardian **** A rather well-known rabbit attempts to stop an alien blowing up the earth. In a Berlin café a professor pleads with her student not to commit an atrocious act. And in an infamous London department store the weirdest ever episode of Are You Being Served? is about to begin. Examining extreme acts of violence and the lengths people will go for their beliefs, And The Horse You Rode In On is a dark, funny and deeply disturbing look at how powerless we are to stop people when they have reached a point of no return. Inspired by Hitchcock’s Sabotage, Dario Fo and Günter Grass, this sequence of serious follies takes Told by an Idiot’s unique and distinctive style in a new and unsettling direction in this sinister comedy of ineptitude. Formed in 1993, Told by an Idiot has established an international reputation for its comic, innovative and startlingly original productions, revelling in a style of theatre that is bigger than life. Past productions include 2009’s The Fahrenheit Twins and the acclaimed The Comedy of Errors with the Royal Shakespeare Company.
