The Regulars cast

A UK première of The Regulars, a folk music musical about identity and self-love, is the headline event in Hope Mill Theatre’s third annual LGBTQIA+ Arts Festival in Manchester.

Mark Howard moves away from his childhood home to a rural, upstate town in search of a new type of family. When he picks up a stockroom position at the town’s local orchard, he befriends Dani Thompson, who is opening her own gay bar. Two very regular people form and find chosen family in one another and their community.

It will be presented as a concert at 2PM and 7PM on Saturday January 29 before moving to a workshop production at Hope Mill next year.
