Previewed: One at Home Manchester

Manchester theatre - One will run at Home Manchester

Bertrand Lesca and Nasi Voutsas return to HOME Manchester with One, the third production in their trilogy of shows on contemporary political questions.

The production of One follows their shows Eurohouse and Palmyra at Home Manchester’s 2017 Orbit Festival.

One looks at the polarisation of politics today in an immediate, accessible form.  Beginning amid the ruins of an unresolved conflict, Bert and Nasi’s new piece examines the left through the prism of the right, and the walls we build to protect the difference between what we say and who we really are.



Nasi is on a ladder. He’s not coming down any time soon.  Is it time for Bert’s solo career to begin, or can they find some common ground, however unsteady?

One looks at Bert and Nasi’s on-stage relationship, exploring the dynamics of politics.  Filled with humour and interacting with audiences, One considers the viewers role as an active spectator in global politics.

When does One run at Home Manchester?

One runs at Home Manchester from 8-10 May 2019.  Tickets £12.50 (concessions £5, £10).  The production then enjoys a run at the Edinburgh Fringe 2019 before embarking on a UK tour in September.
