The first Christmas production at HOME Manchester will be the English language stage première of Cornelia Funke’s best-selling children’s fantasy novel Inkheart.

In this episode, we speak to Irish actor Will Irvine, who returns to Manchester to play Capricorn, the ultimate "baddy", and to director Walter Meierjohann, who directed an earlier adaptation of this story in Germany in 2006.

Inkheart, adapted for the stage by Stephen Sharkey and Walter Meierjohann for HOME Manchester, runs from Friday 4 December 2015 to Saturday 9 January 2016. For more information and to book tickets, see or call the box office on 0161 200 1500.
