Thank You Very Much premiered at the Uknrain Cultural Centre in Manchester on 17 July to standing ovations and some great reviews!
“Astonishing…a life-affirming display of community spirit that would make Elvis quiver with pride”★★★★★ The Herald
“a thought-provoking and poignant show about identity, performance and disruption”★★★★ The Guardian
“What I didn’t expect was for Thank You Very Much to punch me in the gut quite as hard, or stay with me so clearly afterwards” BBC’s Manchester International Festival Blog
and it looks like the Manchester audiences loved it too! Thank You Very Much will now go out on tour with dates in Glasgow and others to be announced soon.
Thank You Very Much @ClaireCprojects @MIFestival is a gem of a show (of the big, polished, rhinestone variety) set perfectly into the welcoming environs of the Ukrainian Cultural Centre #MIF19 pic.twitter.com/ehzXbkRECv

@ClaireCprojects ‘Thank You Very Much’ was by a million miles the best performance I’ve seen in @MIFestival this year. The care, the care, the care. Feeling joyful, tearful and full of gladness that such work exists. Thankyou. So very much.
