West Yorkshire Playhouse – March events

Boi Boi Is Dead: 14th Feb – 7th March

Brought to you by a local writer and performer, Zodwa Nyoni, this is the story that demonstrates that when someone leaves us through death, it doesn’t necessarily mean that their legacy dies with them. A powerful play with the addition of live music, watch how the families and left-behinds of Boi Boi cope with their secrets and the aftermath of his passing.

Uncle Vanya: 28th Feb – 21st March

This Russian masterpiece was originally penned by Chekov, but has been revamped and given new life by Samuel Adamson. A comical yet dark performance, this play follows the unrequited love that Uncle Vanya holds for the woman he can’t have – the woman married to his former friend and now rival, the Professor.

To Kill a Mockingbird: 24th March – 4th April

The award-winning novel that inspired this play was (and still is) a popular study material in English lessons across the country, particularly due to the wonderful way it deals with challenging themes such as racial prejudice and abuse. Performed by an award-winning London theatre group, this story will take you on a rollercoaster of emotion with its depth, tenderness and tragedy.

Mermaid: 25th March – 28th March

Based on the original Hans Christian Anderson story of the same name, this modern take on the classic blends mythology with a surreal musical backdrop, taking the audience on a journey of love with a dark edge that will enchant and enthral.

Also on… City Varieties

The City Varieties also has some great performances lined up in March, and it’s just a short walk away from Trafalgar Street if you’re looking for great value, secure car parking for your evening out.

There’s comedy from Andy Parsons and Gina Yashere, a live hypnotist show hosted by Andrew Newton, grotesque cabaret from the Tiger Lilies and even a parody of the hit TV show Breaking Bad. Well worth a trip to the website for more information!
