Puffball is a new production devised and performed by world class circus artists and a young LGBTQ cast in collaboration with renowned artist Mark Storor. Inspired by the cast’s own personal stories, the show will be the culmination of a major year-long project working with young people identifying as LGBTQ from towns and cities across the UK. Fusing storytelling with beautiful circus performances, Puffball is set to a live score composed by award-winning composer Jules Maxwell.

Commissioned by the Roundhouse in London, Royal Exchange Theatre is working in partnership with Contact to present Puffball in Manchester. Puffball will premiere as a centrepiece of the venue’s biennial CircusFest in April 2014, before touring nationally. Each performance is followed by Mother’s Ruin: Puffball Cabaret (suitable for over 16s only) in the Royal Exchange’s Great Hall.


This performance is taking place at the Royal Exchange Theatre, St Ann’s Square, Manchester. Online booking is available by clicking here. Alternatively please call 0161 833 9833.
