The Theatre Show

The Theatre Show, 27 September 2012

This week, we have a look at the season from September through to February at the Contact Theatre, Manchester's specialist theatre for young people.

We also look at a couple of theatre-related books. Getting Directions by Russ Hope takes the reader inside the rehearsal rooms of professional directors working in the modern theatre and John Byrne's Writing Comedy tries to equip budding writers with the tools both to practise their craft and to establish careers for themselves.
