Our very own Sarah Frankcom and Maxine Peake will be 'in conversation' Wednesday 12 February, 6pm-8pm. The acclaimed theatre and television actress Maxine Peake has had a long and fruitful relationship with Manchester's; Royal Exchange theatre. In 2014 she becomes an assosciate artist, a role that will see her work even more closely with our artistic director Sarah Frankcom. "The Theatre of the Mind" will see Maxine and Sarah in an intimate conversation that explores the impulse to create drama – and which uncovers the creative process behind theatre, radio and TV drama. This talk has been arranged with the support of the Royal Exchange Theatre.
