West Yorkshire Playhouse

West Yorkshire Playhouse


West Yorkshire Playhouse is a producing house making vital theatre in Leeds. We are a cultural hub for the city and beyond, a place where people and communities come to tell and share stories; to engage in world class theatre that is pioneering, invigorating and relevant. We seek out the best companies and individual artists locally, nationally and internationally to create inspirational theatre here in the heart of Yorkshire.

We are dedicated collaborators, working regularly with other theatres from across the UK, independent producers and some of the most distinctive, original talent around. We develop work with established practitioners and find new voices that we believe should be heard, providing a creative space for new writers, emerging companies and individual theatre makers. We make work with national and international ambitions yet we’re locally rooted and our distinctiveness is informed by where we’re from.

Cultural organisations are vital for growth. By opening up our building, our work and our imagination we will develop theatre across many platforms from large scale spectacle to more intimate performances. We will help transform the way our city is seen. And we will transform the way we see our city, Yorkshire, the world and each other by reaching out to and working with communities, schools and audiences. We are an agent for change, enabling people to develop the skills they need to transform their chances in life, to realise their potential.

We will tell important stories that make a difference, are necessary and are vital for today.
