The Theatre Show

The Theatre Show, 27 October 2011

In the week that he announced he is to step down next year, the executive director of the Octagon Theatre in Bolton, John Blackmore, joins us to talk about his time at the theatre, taking it from the point of bankruptcy to being one of the most successful regional producing theatres in the north west.

We bring you reviews of three productions: Habeas Corpus by Alan Bennett at the Octagon Theatre in Bolton, The Glass Menagerie by Tennessee Williams at the Coliseum Theatre in Oldham and Slava's Snow Show at The Lowry in Salford.
