We are very happy to welcome back West Yorkshire Playhouse and Red Ladder Theatre Company for another community touring show.

Down the stairs…
Along the corridor…
Round the corner…
Into the dressing room.
HIS dressing room.
Hateful, hateful place.
Spiteful, spiteful place.
Dirty, dirty Leeds.

1974. Brian Clough, the enfant terrible of British football, tries to redeem his career and reputation by winning the European Cup with his new team. Leeds United. The team he has openly despised for years, the team he hates and which hates him. Don Revie’s Leeds.

Adapted from David Peace’s brilliant and ingenious novel, The Damned United takes you inside the tortured mind of a genius slamming up against his limits, and brings to life the beauty and brutality of football, the working man’s ballet.

There is very strong language in this performance so the Age Guide is 16+.

We are very pleased to have theatre director, Rod Dixon, coming to Chapel FM on Thursday April 12th to talk to our young performers about the process of putting the show together and about the context of the work (and the strong language!). If you know of young people who would like to come and hear from Rod before attending the show the following week then please let us know by filling in the form below.
