I was sitting having a coffee in the theatre bar half an hour later when a member of the box office staff came over to tell me that tickets for my first performance had been returned and if I'd like to exchange these for the tickets I'd purchased I could do so free of charge, something I've never experienced elsewhere.

The Royal Exchange, located in St Ann’s Square, Manchester, is the home to the Royal Exchange Theatre Company which was formed in 1968 by a group of successful theatre practitioners who were determined to give Manchester a theatre producing work of national standards.
