A PLAY IN CELEBRATION OF OUR HISTORIC LIBRARY
To celebrate the 250th anniversary of The Leeds Library, Leeds Playhouse in partnership with The Leeds Library and Leeds Libraries have commissioned a brand new play celebrating the legacy of the historic institution.
The Things We Wouldn’t Otherwise Find, written by West Yorkshire writer Emma Adams (Tiny Shoes, Leeds Playhouse and Brontë Parsonage, Animals, Theatre 503) celebrates the people who visit libraries every day, and explores the relevance of the library in contemporary society. The production will be performed within the exciting environment of The Leeds Library from Tuesday 6 – Saturday 17 November ahead of a tour of libraries throughout the city.
Two actors create ten extraordinary characters in this gloriously funny and playfully provocative exploration of libraries in the age of the internet search engine, directed by Tess Seddon (Romeo & Juliet, Villette, Leeds Playhouse Assistant Director).
Founded in 1768, The Leeds Library located in Leeds city centre, is the oldest surviving subscription library of its kind. The library hosts historical collections from popular novels and children’s books and Civil War pamphlets and Reformation Tracts alongside new books and audio/visual items.
