The Royal Exchange Autumn / Winter Season

Kristy Stott, Theatre Editor

The Royal Exchange’s autumn season takes some of the world’s most revered texts and gives them a fresh spin. These sharp and inventive reimaginings invite audiences to take a fresh look at these familiar texts and also at the world in which we live.

The line-up of directors, writers and theatre-makers will not disappoint – with this season threatening to be even better than the last. Jade Anouka launched the season as Queen Margaret, in a thrilling retelling of the Wars of the Roses written by Jeanie O’Hare. Associate Artist Don Warrington returns to play the iconic Willy Loman in Sarah Frankcom’s version of the Arthur Miller classic Death of a Salesman. And Julie Hesmondhalgh steps into Mother Courage‘s well-worn boots in an original version of Brecht’s classic play written by Anna Jordan.

This autumn the Royal Exchange will reconsider the travelling plays of the Middle Ages in The Mysteries – a cycle of six brand new plays which explore how places and landscapes shape us and the communities in which we live.

Following on from the success of Guys and Dolls last year, the Royal Exchange celebrates Christmas with another dazzling, toe-tapping Broadway classic – The Producers.

Don’t leave it too late to book – we don’t want you to miss out.
