Glue tells the raw and moving story of Louise Wallwein and her first two meetings with her birth mother, three decades after being put up for adoption. A poet and playwright who grew up in care from the age of nine, Louise invites you to share a very private first reunion and also a subsequent more public second meeting. Lyrical, vulnerable, fierce and funny, this acclaimed one-woman show challenges us to think about the nature of belonging and asks what family and home really are.

Louise Wallwein’s career took off in 1998 when she performed an award-winning one-woman show on the wing of a World War 2 aircraft in Manchester Museum of Science and Industry.  Since then she has written and performed over a dozen works and written plays and ballads for BBC Radio 4, Radio 3 and BBC World Sevice. She is renowned for her creative work with community groups and we are delighted that she will also be running a writing workshop for care leavers and those who have experienced the care system.

See our participation section for details.

Please be seated for show by 7pm.

Strictly no admission after show starts.
