David Upton

The Almighty Sometimes, at Manchester Royal Exchange February 9 to 24, marks writer Kendall Feaver’s professional debut.

Winner of a Judges Award in the Bruntwood Prize for Playwriting 2015, it is a portrait of a young woman trying to take back control and a mother compelled to protect her.

The award-winning Julie Hesmondhalgh and critically acclaimed Norah Lopez Holden return to the Exchange to play mother and daughter and are joined on stage by Sharon Duncan-Brewster (who returns following her award-winning performance in A Streetcar Named Desire) and Mike Noble.
