LANCASHIRE actress Julie Hesmondhalgh has been praised for her role in a new play at Manchester’s Royal Exchange theatre.

Blindsided is set in Stockport and centres around eccentric misfit teenager Cathy Heyer and the manip-ulative John Connolly, who breaks her heart.

Hesmondhalgh plays Cathy’s mother, Susan.

The play has received rave reviews and Hesmondhalgh has been recognised for her part.

Reviewer Susannah Clapp said: “Those who have admired Hesmondhalgh for the meticulous creation of a stalwart character will not be surprised to see her steady, true performance on stage.”

The play is on until February 15. For more details visit: www.royal exchange.co.uk
