The Theatre Show, 26 May 2011

This week, we bring you a review of the latest production at Manchester's Royal Exchange Theatre, of Arthur Miller's classic tragedy A View From The Bridge starring Con O'Neill as Italian-American longshoreman Eddie Carbone in Brooklyn in the 1950s.

We also take an in-depth look at the theatre offerings in the Manchester International Festival for 2011, the third occurrence of this large-scale biennial festival that has become one of the most significant arts festivals in the world.
