Productions

No Exit (Huis Clos)
by Jean-Paul Satre, translated from the French by Stuart Gilbertdirected by Carrieanne Vivianette
Wednesday 8th – Saturday 11th May 2019
Upstairs @ The Carriageworks

Three people are enduring a terrible existence that we can only imagine.

Garcin, Inez and Estelle are strangers who find themselves impounded together after death as retribution for their sins in life. They are held captive in one room for eternity, abandoned in their own personal and vindictive hell.

Left with only each other, the incarcerated trio attempt to come to terms with their situation. Each of the three has the power to exacerbate or alleviate this hell.

Can they find resolution, or is there truly no exit?

The Mill on the Floss
by Helen Edmundson, adapted from the novel by George Eliotdirected by Rachel Vernelle
Thursday 27th – Saturday 29th June 2019
The Carriageworks Main Space

Tom and Maggie Tulliver, siblings growing up at Dorlcote Mill on the River Floss, have an intense and abiding bond.

Maggie is intelligent, wilful and passionate; Tom is a practical, unforgiving boy, not cut our for the ‘book learning’ expected of him. As they grow, events strain their relationship. Both make choices dictated by their characters and their places in the world, driving the wedge deeper between them and culminating in tragedy.

George Eliot’s novel is no drawing-room affair of manners and this thrilling adaptation is theatrical and physical.

Auditions are on Tuesday March 26th or Thursday March 28th, at 7.30pm at the Carriageworks.

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

As autumn turns to winter and Hallowe’en approaches, a gentleman tramp, looking for somewhere to shelter from the wind and rain, finds just the place in an overgrown village graveyard. He makes friends with the residents below ground and the vicar above, none of whom raise any objection to his spending the winter there. But to others he’s just a rough sleeper who needs to be got rid of.

Leeds Arts Centre is pleased to present this new play by Neil Rathmell, confident that audiences will enjoy it as much as they enjoyed his other plays, Unspoken in 2017 and It’s A Miracle and The Colin Atkins Story in 2018.

Funny, scary and sad by turns, Rough Sleepers will provide entertainment that's just right for the Hallowe’en season.
