The Theatre Show

The Theatre Show, 6 September 2012

David Thacker, the artistic director of the Octagon Theatre in Bolton, gives us a very detailed rundown of the new season at the Octagon, which started this week and runs until next summer.

We also hear from David Glindon, who is directing Entertaining Angels by Richard Everett at Stockport Garrick, which opens this weekend.

We bring you a review of the Out of Joint and Octagon co-production of a revival of Our Country's Good by Timberlake Wertenbaker at the Octagon, directed, like the first production nearly 25 years ago, by Max Stafford-Clark.

Plus we give details of a roadshow later this year offering workshops for anyone interesting in entering the Bruntwood Prize for Playwriting, based at Manchester's Royal Exchange Theatre.
