Bath night for Valentine's couple in Ancoats!

Wonderhouse Theatre Company offers a “more authentic” Valentine’s Day experience on February 14.

From February 13 to 23 it will be staging the Northern première of Mydidae, written by BAFTA winner Jack Thorne, who is also responsible for TV’s Skins, This is England and Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.

Staged in a specially-designed bathroom set incorporating a full-sized bath at Hope Mill Theatre in Ancoats, characters Marian and David’s attempt at a romantic candle-lit bath descends into an autopsy of the most painful events in their relationship.

Mydidae was first performed at Soho Theatre, London in 2012 and starred Phoebe Waller-Bridge, writer of hit TV show Killing Eve and BAFTA winner Fleabag.
