Royal Exchange presents a cityscape

Published: 30 December 2018

For the spring and summer season, Manchester Royal Exchange Theatre has created a season of work that reflects the complexity of a city, from stories of industry and productivity to rivalry, family and community obligations.

In April, artistic director Sarah Frankcom directs her new version of West Side Story. Inua Ellams’s Barber Shop Chronicles kicks off its UK tour and writers Tanika Gupta and James Yeatman reimagine key moments in Manchester’s unique journey in Hobson’s Choice and There Is a Light That Never Goes Out: Scenes From The Luddite Rebellion.
