Rough Sleepers
by Neil Rathmelldirected by Neil Rathmell
Wednesday 23rd – Saturday 26th October 2019
Upstairs @ The Carriageworks

Neil Rathmell’s new play, Rough Sleepers, is set in an overgrown graveyard outside a disused chapel. Just the place for a ‘gentleman of the road’ to take shelter for the winter with only the quiet sleepers in their graves for company. The vicar makes him welcome, but some of her parishioners take a different view.

Just right for the Hallowe’en season, with humour and pathos, thunder and lightning, birdsong, music and pyrotechnics!

This is the third time Leeds Arts Centre has premiered one of Neil Rathmell’s plays.
