Win a pair of tickets to the launch & a signed copy of <i>The worst it can be is a disaster</i>

Braham Murray - founding Artistic Director of the Royal Exchange Theatre, releases his autobiography The worst it can be is a disaster on 10 September. Behind the scenes tears and tatnrums, on stage triumphs featuring some of this country's best known actors and steering a company through the ravages of an IRA bombing, have all been part of the real drama in a life as one of the founding fathers of Manchester's Royal Exchange Theatre.

Braham's passion is sometimes overwhelming, sometimes annoying but compeletely inspirational. It's his passion that the Royal Exchange has thrived on, and this book is full of his passion for the theatre' Robert Lindsay

Braham Murray's position in the British theatre is unparalleled. He has devoted the whole of his career first to the foundation and subsequently to the direction of one theatre, the Royal Exchange - consistently the country's leading repertory company and by common consent the most exciting and effective piece of theatre architecture of the last fifty years' Nick Hytner (Artistic Director, National Theatre)

The book provides a definitive history of a theatre which has been home to some of the country's leading theatrical names over the past 30 years. Theses have included Vanessa Redgrave, Albert Finney, John Thaw, Robert Lindsay, Leo McKern, Brenda Blethyn, Helen Mirren, Bob Hoskins, Pete Postlethwaite, David Threlfall, Kate Winslet, Michael Sheen and Sir Tom Courtenay (who has written a foreword for the book).

On Thursday 13 September there will be a book launch and signing at 1pm at the Royal Exchange Theatre, and Braham Murray will be on stage talking about his book with Independent theatre critic Lynne Walker. Tickets to the event are £3 (redeemable against buying a signed copy of the book on the day). Box Office 0161 833 9833
