The Theatre Show

The Theatre Show, 30 June 2011

Royal Exchange Theatre co-founding artistic director Braham Murray tells us about his decision to step down from the helm of the acclaimed Manchester theatre after 35 years and reflects on his proudest moments there.

Kevin Shaw, artistic director of the Coliseum Theatre in Oldham, tells us about the theatre's autumn and winter season and about the temporary move out of the Fairbottom Street building while refurbishments and essential maintenance are carried out. He gives us some teasers about the work they intend to do next year in various locations and talks about this Saturday's open day at the theatre.

In a packed July for theatre festivals, we give a run-down of all of the festivals that are on in the local area and tell you how to find out more about them.
