Mark Thomas has been a regular visitor to The Lowry over the years – presenting a unique mixture of comedy, politics and public education.
His performances always have a very theatrical edge and a real sense of “Event”. After a performance of Trespass in 2016 the entire Lowry audience found themselves on the Plaza at 11pm singing a specially composed anthem about the joys of swearing in defiance of a recently introduced bye law.
Mark has always been passionate about the plight of Palestinians and in 2018 we presented Stand Up on The Front Line about a theatre school on the West Bank.
Walking The Wall is an earlier show about walking the whole length of the border between Israel and the disputed Palestinian territory.
