Sunshine on Leith at The West Yorkshire Playhouse

The perfect ratio of heart-warming and heart-wrenching for a feel good musical. I wanted to see Sunshine on Leith when the film came out but never got round to it. I knew it was a stage musical before becoming a… Continue Reading →

Making the most of Happy Hour

In the same way that I probably spend as much time browsing books to buy as I do reading them, I probably spend as much time leafing through theatre brochures and websites as I do actually watching shows. I love… Continue Reading →

What have I got myself into?? – Part 1

I have been doing something bizarre. Fun, and a little unnerving, but mainly bizarre. Before I continue, I should warn you that this is a long blog post, so go get yourself a cup of tea and a biscuit (take… Continue Reading →

Still Alice at the West Yorkshire Playhouse

An emotionally dramatic production showing there can be light in the darkness Having enjoyed reading Still Alice a couple of years ago (as much as you can enjoy reading about something so sad) I was pleased to see that The West… Continue Reading →

Upcoming: William Shakespeare’s Long Lost First Play (Abridged)

I’m a big fan of the Reduced Shakespeare Company (“the other RSC”). This comical theatre group specialises in cutting out the bard’s boring bits and putting on plays that will have the audience in stitches. I first saw them in “The… Continue Reading →

Playing dress up: costume hire at the Playhouse

Food, drink and a show at the Electric Press

James and I bought tickets to see Tape Face at The Carriageworks a while ago. I was actually purposefully looking for something to see at The Carriageworks as I realised I’d never been to a performance there before. Even if you’ve not been… Continue Reading →

Christmas countdown (part one)

One of my aims for writing this blog was to encourage me to try different things and discover new places in Leeds, so when I got an email asking if I’d like to attend SWARM – an “immersive experience” at… Continue Reading →

Upstairs at the theatre

If you’re from the area, it’s likely that you’ll have heard of Leeds Grand Theatre and perhaps will even have been yourself. Not many people know about the Howard Assembly Room however, tucked away on the first floor of the theatre…. Continue Reading →
