CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned re-opening time though it will not be before 1st June 2020 and is most likely to be September (according to some West End producers). Some shows have been cancelled, or closed early, but many are being rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with the changes - assume that anything posted for April to August is actually postponed or cancelled. It now looks likely that little will return till 2021.

What is currently on at Leeds Playhouse (formerly West Yorkshire Playhouse) (V977)

Mister Heracles

A living legend returns home after years away. He finds his family under threat of execution and his country in despair. It's not quite the welcome home he'd expected. The country has been waiting for the return of a conquering hero, but Heracles is just a man - a master of violence, but also a slave to it. Shocking and strange, tearing from triumph to horror, Mister Heracles was commissioned by the Playhouse from Yorkshire-born poet, Simon Armitage.
