Manchester Royal Exchange - don't forget to book for first captioned performances!
As reported in June, The Royal Exchange Theatre in Manchester has programmed four captioned performances in its autumn/winter season. The first one, The Country Wife, will be dedicated to the memory of Geoff Brown, one of the founders of STAGETEXT who lived locally and had campaigned for many years to see captioning in the venue.
There are still some tickets left, so don't miss out! Here are the details of all the productions:
The Country Wife – Thursday 11 October, 7.30pm
