We undo the damage
We right the wrongs
We need to remember 
We need to forget about it.
We could undo the damage...
How far back would we have to go?

JOIN THE ROYAL EXCHANGE YOUNG COMPANY FOR THIS LIVE JOURNEY THROUGH ZOOM AS THEY SEARCH FOR ANSWERS, QUESTION THIS NEW NORMAL & WORK OUT HOW WE CAN MOVE ON. 

BE PREPARED TO CHAT WITH THEM, ENGAGE IN CONVERSATION AND MAKE SURE YOU ARE THE REAL YOU. 

The Royal Exchange Young Company continued throughout the spring and summer, after the closure of our magnificent building. The groups met on Zoom to allow young people to express themselves during this time of uncertainty. In place of our usual summer production, the groups have developed this virtual sharing of their work, celebrating them and the diversity of the Young Company and Manchester. 

So, come and join us, Friday 14 August 2020 at 2:30pm or 6:00pm for a special sharing of their creativity.  Directed by Nickie Miles-Wildin, written by Elizabeth Logan, Iona Rainford-Miller and Elli Kypriadis (Young Company Writers) with additional material devised by the Young Company Performers.

With thanks to the Noel Coward Foundation for their support of "MMXX".
