The Damned United returns to West Yorkshire Playhouse

The stage adaptation of THE DAMNED UNITED is returning to West Yorkshire Playhouse following its sell-out world premiere at the venue in 2016.

Red Ladder and West Yorkshire Playhouse are teaming-up again to bring this critically acclaimed play by Anders Lustgarten, adapted from David Peace’s best-selling novel, back onto the Courtyard stage for two weeks from 27 March – 7 April.

The Damned United will then hit the road across the city as Red Ladder Local and West Yorkshire Playhouse take it on a tour of community venues across Leeds.

The Damned United was a sell-out success at the Playhouse in 2016 with over 8,000 tickets sold. In this stripped back and freshly reimagined new version of the original production, a cast of three actors bring to life David Peace’s compelling novel about Brian Clough‘s doomed 44-day period as manager of Leeds United.

Tickets can be booked for the West Yorkshire Playhouse performances NOW – and watch this space for details of the community tour.
