Leeds Arts Centre is a prestigious amateur theatre group which presents a wide variety of plays at the Carriageworks Theatre on Millennium Square in Leeds.
We offer opportunities to all who are interested in becoming involved with any aspect of drama, including acting, directing, stage management, props, designing, costumes, lighting, sound, publicity and front of house.
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.
