The Royal Exchange Theatre became a living, breathing, singing and dancing bingo hall for this new theatrical creation, a genuinely participatory experience. The fun and dramatic tension came from the audience playing bingo along with the actors – one lucky punter went home with £200 each night. With pitch-perfect performances from Sally Lindsay and Ian Puleston-Davies along with a superb supporting cast, Everybody Loves a Winner won over audiences and critics alike.

‘[It has] a wonderful authenticity… Lucky, lucky Manchester’ The Daily Telegraph
