Braham Murray steps down at Manchester’s Royal Exchange

Monday, 27 June, 2011

Manchester’s Royal Exchange Theatre has announced that its founding Artistic Director Braham Murray is to step down after 35 years with the company.

Since its inception in 1976, he has been at the forefront of the company – championing its work, steering it through the difficult years following the 1996 IRA bombing and leading it to its present position as a theatre of truly national and international standing.

Over four decades his work has included everything from classics to musicals and full scale operas and he has worked with many of the country’s leading actors – including Sir Tom Courtenay, Vanessa Redgrave, John Mills, Judi Dench, Maureen Lipman, Amanda Donohoe, Robert Lindsay, Andy Serkis and Brenda Blethyn. In 2010 he received an OBE for services to theatre.
