Red Ladder and mad dogs dance theatre present: TAXI
Written by Andrea Heaton
Co-directed by Rod Dixon and Douglas Thorpe
“Leeds. So many people. So many stories.
I’m driving and driving and never moving.”
I was there when your son was born…
I drove you to your mother’s funeral…
I see you at your best and your worst…
But you don’t even know my name…
I’m just TAXI
TAXI sees the streets of the city in all their visceral glory. He meets so many people but knows no one: a silent observer of the best and worst of humanity. Slowly fading into a fantasy world of black and white movies to escape this ugly reality, can anyone save him?
Climb aboard as Red Ladder Theatre Company brings Andrea Heaton’s searing script, to life with a kinetic fusion of drama and dance. Co-directed by Rod Dixon (Red Ladder Theatre Company) and mad dogs theatre director (and ex-taxi driver) Douglas Thorpe, this original fusion of theatre and dance, will take you on a thrilling ride you won’t forget!
