The Right Ballerina

Famous ballerina Penny is at the top of her game, but when Mr X and his followers make public something unsavoury about her past, Penny is at risk of losing more than her reputation… This provocative new play comes from the award-winning Billy Cowan and Truant Company, who brought the five-star Care Takers to The Lowry in 2011.

This play contains some dance elements choreographed by renowned dancer/ choreographer Julia Griffin who has choreographed music videos for Black Grape and Beautiful South as well as working with Siobhan Davies and iconic performance artist Marina Abramovic.


Suitable for ages 16+


Tickets for Friday 12th October include an after-show debate which will be chaired by Manchester Salon and will last about 30 mins. Taking part in the debate is optional and open to anyone who wishes to stay after the performance. So why not come along and join in on what promises to be an exciting night of performance and heated discussion.


The Lowry is a private limited company registered in England and Wales (no. 3255905) and a registered charity (no. 1053962).
