With hit songs that’ll undoubtedly have you humming along to the likes of “Hungry Eyes”, “Hey Baby”, “Do You Love Me?” and the heart stopping “I’ve Had The Time Of My Life.”

Manchester

Royal Exchange Theatre – The Last Days of Troy

Capping off our round up of city theatre offerings is The Last Days of Troy at the Royal Exchange Theatre in Manchester. Telling the story of two civilizations at war, this theatrical offering is tense and intriguing, with moments of great tragedy and breath-taking humility. Focusing on the story of a nation commemorating WWI, the story centres on a legendary battle between the ancient city of Troy and the Greek soldiers attempting to lay siege to it.

The story, which is brought together by Simon Armitage, brings the war to a brutal conclusion. Through it, he considers how we are locked in the same cycles of conflict and revenge, of east versus west, and the same mixture of pride, lies and self-deception that fed the Trojan War.

Running through until 7 June, tickets are available starting at £14.50.
