Mary Barton at the Exchange

The trail blazing feminist novel Mary Barton was brought alive at the fantastic Royal Exchange The play provided great scope for the actresses to emote and relate the horrors of early Capitalism and the strength of women especially Kellie Bright as the eponymous heroine The stark , crisp minimalist set really aloud one to focus on the superb acting and the set pieces ,including the burning of a mill , was impressive and well done. It made me want to celebrate modern life and party till 4 we did
