With original songs and stories, ‘The Washing Up ‘ takes an absurd look at the politics and practice of the everyday act of doing the washing up. 

It is devised and performed by people who are in addiction recovery and audiences have described the work as “bonkers and brilliant”. 

There are two chances to see the show, at the University of Manchester on Wednesday 20 March:

As a special Manchester addition to the programme, there will be an accompanying workshop at the LGBT Foundation on Tuesday 5 March where you can share your own personal stories and washing up experiences with the possibility of including them in our show. It’s a chance to play and connect with others through an everyday experience. Please bring one of your tea towels to show us! Register at the link below.

The Washing Up workshop will be facilitated by Kate McCoy of small performance adventures and is delivered in partnership with Portraits of Recovery, The LGBT Foundation and Superbia.
