Missed it over on Instagram Live last week? Fret not…

In our seventh AYT in Isolation episode, we speak to the particularly delectable, Roy Alexander Weise who, as well as being joint Artistic Director and Chief Executive of Manchester’s Royal Exchange Theatre, is also one of the UK’s top directors with productions at The National Theatre (Master Harold… and the Boys, Nine Night) and the Bristol and Young Vic (The Mountaintop under his belt)

Roy speaks to Matt Barton about one of the only (and best) shows he has seen in lockdown – Barber Shop Chronicles; his thoughts on why ‘BAME’ is a lazy and offensive term; why diversifying audiences is (obviously) important – especially post-corona; why there’s no shame in doing ‘crappy’ jobs and much, much more. Honestly, we’d be quite content just sitting and listening to Roy all day, every day.
