Productions

The Rose and Crown
by J. B. Priestleydirected by Ken Taylor
7.30pm • Wednesday 26th – Saturday 29th April 2017
The Carriageworks Main Stage

The occupants of a snug bar in a pub are bemoaning their lot, and the misery of shortages and rationing in 1947’s post-war Britain.

A stranger has entered, and listens to their conversation. The stranger tells the drinkers that he is the Angel of Death, and that he is one short of his daily quota.

The room is sealed off, and they can’t leave. The stranger is happy for them to choose who his next victim will be and – given their misery – he’s sure that they will have a volunteer.

The Rose and Crown is being performed as part of a double-bill with After Midnight – Before Dawn.

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.

After Midnight Before Dawn
by David Camptondirected by Ken Taylor
7.30pm • Wednesday 26th – Saturday 29th April 2017
The Carriageworks Main Stage

Some time in the late 16th or early 17th Century, a group of six women are confined in a prison cell. They are to be hanged at dawn for witchcraft.

Only one of them appears to be unmoved by the situation. When questioned, she is certain that since she is a real witch, Satan will not let her hang.

The other women all implore her to help them achieve the protection of Satan, with unforeseen results.

After Midnight – Before Dawn is being performed as part of a double-bill with The Rose and Crown.

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.

Unspoken
by Neil Rathmell with Trudy Stewartdirected by Trudy Stewart
7.45pm • Wednesday 5th – Saturday 8th July 2017
Upstairs @ The Carriageworks

Alex has a secret. A secret that makes him frustrated and ashamed. A secret he has tried to hide all his life. Until tonight.

Tonight he has to decide whether to tell his secret, or to choose once again to let it remain unspoken.

Unspoken is a unique dramatic exploration of the experience of stammering.

“Why does Alex talk funny?”

The play might not answer the question, but it will help you to understand what it feels like to hear it asked.

The world premiere of this new play is the result of a collaboration between Leeds Arts Centre and the stammering community, aiming to deepen understanding through the medium of theatre.

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.
