Julie Hesmondhalgh in world premiere of The Almighty Sometimes

Julie Hesmondhalgh, who played Hayley Cropper in Coronation Street, will star in a new play called The Almighty Sometimes. The play will run at Manchester Exchange next year.

What's on Stage tells us that the play is directed by Katy Rudd, Kendall Feaver's first professional play – which won one of the judges prizes in the 2015 Bruntwood Prize for Playwriting – is a portrait of a young woman, played by Norah Lopez Holden, who urgently wants to find out who she is, and a mother (Julie Hesmondahalgh) who is determined to protect her.

Julie says: "There is so much love, warmth and humour in this play about family, loss, mental health and creativity. It feels important to be talking about these things right now as there is an undoubted crisis around the wellbeing of our young people. I feel excited and honoured to be part of this beautiful play."

Julie's other theatre credits include The Report and God Bless The Child (Royal Court). She was most recently seen on television in the ITV drama Broadchurch.

The Almighty Sometimes runs at the Royal Exchange Manchester from 9 to 24 February 2018.

Thanks, FN. Much as I miss her character, I'm glad she's doing well as an actress.
