Actress Lynda Rooke talks about playing the late northern actress Pat Phoenix, better known as iconic Coronation Street character Elsie Tanner, in Ron Rose's play The Queen of the North at the Octagon Theatre in Bolton.

Mike Rogerson tells us about a production he is directing for Wilmslow Green Room of Martin McDonagh's savage Irish comedy The Lonesome West.

We also give a rundown of the new seasons at the Octagon and at the Royal Exchange Theatre in Manchester, which were both announced this week.
