West Yorkshire Playhouse today announced it will change its name to Leeds Playhouse. The name change marks a new chapter in the theatre’s 50-year history.
Powerful revival of Jim Cartwright’s 1986 modern classic comes alive in all its noisy, vulgar and transcendent glory.
As somebody who grew up on the outskirts of a depressed Lancashire town in the 1980s, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect from the Royal Court’s revival of Jim Cartwright’s seminal debut play Road.

Being only playwright Daniel Foxsmith’s third full length play is rather a surprise, as WEALD is a work that radiates expert craftsmanship, which obviously shows experience is not a necessary component in comparison to sheer talent when constructing a masterpiece. Finborough Theatre, one of London’s leading venues for new works, is no surprise to be the theatre showing this very classy two hander.
