This Autumn and Winter the Royal Exchange’s new season is packed with some of the world’s greatest plays and most epic stories. These incredible pieces of drama are freshly reimagined for our contemporary world and invite us to take a look, through the eyes of some captivating characters, at the world today.

A host of fantastic directors, writers, and theatre-makers will be creating original and entertaining drama in the Theatre and Studio spaces and actors Don Warrington, Julie Hesmondhalgh and Jade Anouka return to the stage to play the iconic Willy Loman, Mother Courage and Queen Margaret.

In the Autumn six new plays criss-cross the country, and church halls and community centres are poised to become stages as the Exchange rethinks the ancient tradition of travelling plays. Continuing a more personal tradition our theatre once again celebrates at Christmas with another spectacular Broadway classic that bursts onto our stage.

Alongside this home-grown work a vibrant new Studio season has something for all the family, and from this autumn there are even more ways to get involved. In September a new Children’s Company is launched to sit alongside our award- winning Young Company and Elders Company, and you can now access this beautiful historical building for private dining or the perfect wedding. And don’t forget – with our brilliant season tickets you don’t need to miss a thing!
