‘BRICKS’ at 53two


Red Brick Theatre and 53two would like to announce their new production BRICKS, a night jam-packed with brand-new theatre set beneath the iconic brick arches of 53two. Produced by Red Brick Theatre, BRICKS provides an evening of bold, exciting and innovative theatre from March 24th – April 1st 2023 with BSL and relaxed performances.

BRICKS consists of six new plays by six new playwrights, each with a running time of approx 15 mins. Under the gaze of Greater Manchester’s finest directors and using the North West’s best actors, we present an evening of the best new writing varying in content and style.

Writers Luke Barnes (National Theatre, Young Vic, Leeds Playhouse) and Will Nyerere Plastow (BBC Casualty), will join other writers to explore stories of regret, revenge and reconnection. Each piece of writing is complemented by its own director including TV favourite George Bukhari (Ridley, Years and Years, Ordinary Lies), 53two’s Creative Director Simon Naylor, co-founder of Red Brick Theatre Oliver Hurst and more. Amongst the cast, 53two welcome Manchester icon Karen Henthorn (Coronation Street, Eastenders, Royal Shakespeare Company), Emmerdale’s Sammy Winward (Emmerdale, Prey) and Tachia Newall (Brassic, Dune, Waterloo Road).

Red Brick Theatre and 53two are collaborating to promote new writing in the Manchester theatre scene giving playwrights a platform for their new work and an opportunity to collaborate with directors around the Greater Manchester area.

53two is a Manchester-based theatre, bar and arts charity that strive to support disadvantaged and underserved artists. With their new renovation, they now have a 150-seater theatre that is fully accessible as well as being open 7 days a week for artists to meet, greet and share.
