Fri 18 February - Sat 19 February

Tomorrow Is Not Promised

This event has passed

A new theatre show by writer and director Tian Glasgow as a part of The Lowry’s Developed With artist development programme.

A woman awakens to find herself homeless and alone after an earthquake. Her house destroyed, leaving only her door which she can’t seem to leave behind. While deciding if to rebuild or to start again, she encounters Suzanne who has suffered her own loss.

The two embark on a journey to help others in the hope of finding healing for themselves.

A co-production between New Slang Productions, The Lowry and Sustained Theatre Up North, Tomorrow is not Promised incorporates movement and live music to tell a beautiful engaging story.

The New Slang Productions team will also be holding an in-person Grief Gathering alongside the performances of Tomorrow is not Promised. Artistic Director Tian Glasgow is a Grief Gathering facilitator having connected with the creators of the sessions Fevered Sleep while they ran their This Grief Thing project. Tian says:

We are very conscious of the themes of grief, loss and change that are presented in Tomorrow is not Promised plus all our experiences of the past few years can be very close to the surface. We would like to offer a calm and held space for audience members to connect with others and talk about anything pertaining to their experiences of grief.

The session will be held on Saturday 19th Feb at 4pm – 5.30pm in the Crosslane Foundation Lab room. Spaces are limited so please RSVP to attend.
