Productions

It’s A Miracle
by Neil Rathmelldirected by Neil Rathmell
7.45pm • Wednesday 4th – Saturday 7th July 2018
Upstairs @ The Carriageworks

When Harriet breaks a pact with Maggie and tells Father Bentley the secret they have kept since they were children seventy years ago, he doesn’t believe her. All she can do to convince him is to ask Maggie to back her up. Just one problem – Maggie is mute.

The Colin Atkins Story had its first performance at an amateur drama festival where, according to the local press, it “stole the show and most of the laughs”. It’s A Miracle will have its première in this production by Leeds Arts Centre.

Neil Rathmell’s last play for Leeds Arts Centre, Unspoken, enjoyed five sell-out performances at The Carriageworks in July 2017 and has gone on to enjoy further success with performances in Antwerp and London.

His fiction has been published by Faber & Faber and in literary magazines in the UK and Ireland. For more information about him and his work, visit neilrathmell.com.

It’s A Miracle is being performed as a double-bill with The Colin Atkins Story.

Tickets are on sale, available from the City Centre Box Office in the Town Hall and, before performances, from the Carriageworks Box Office in the Electric Press building on Millennium Square. Please call in person, or telephone 0113 376 0318. You can also book your tickets online.
The Colin Atkins Story
by Neil Rathmelldirected by Neil Rathmell
7.45pm • Wednesday 4th – Saturday 7th July 2018
Upstairs @ The Carriageworks

One day in 1957, when a boy called Colin Atkins was sent home from school for wearing luminous pink socks, the events which followed unleashed a hitherto unknown force on British society – teenagers. A phenomenon which has puzzled sociologists for decades is finally explained.

The Colin Atkins Story had its first performance at an amateur drama festival where, according to the local press, it “stole the show and most of the laughs”. It’s A Miracle will have its première in this production by Leeds Arts Centre.

The Flint Street Nativity
by Tim Firthdirected by Ben Hopwood
Wednesday 7th – Saturday 10th November 2018
Upstairs @ The Carriageworks

Mizzis Horrocks’ class of seven year olds is about to perform their nativity play at Flint Street Junior School for the proud mums and dads – and the occasional social worker.

Squabbles arise when Gabriel wants to play Mary, the Star grumbles that he’s not a proper star like they have at NASA, Herod won’t stop waving to his mum and dad, and the subversive Innkeeper is determined to liven up the traditional script.

And then the class pet escapes...
